The Change Will Take Place In The Coming Weeks: An Update On The New VogueRunway.com
A lot of changes are currently taking place at Style.com. Condé Nast announced that Style.com would downsize and move under the Vogue.com umbrella. In May, former Editor-In-Chief Dirk Standen left and went to W as its new digital creative director. Earlier in the week, it was reported that Style.com‘s longtime critic and editor at large, Tim Blanks, is taking up the same role at Business of Fashion.
In the latest changes, after 15 years, Style.com will migrate to VogueRunway.com, a section of Vogue.com. Below is what Style.com reports:
In the next several weeks, Style.com’s 15-year archive of runway shows is migrating to VogueRunway.com, a section of Vogue.com. Each and every one of the 12,000-plus collections—literally more than a million pictures from the runway, backstage, the front row, and the streets outside, not to mention all of the reviews that we’ve posted since September 1999—is making the move. It’s an extraordinary development for the coverage of fashion on a global scale.
For the Spring 2016 collections, Vogue Runway will have the same comprehensive coverage of the shows that Style.com did, only now with an expanded roster of reviewers. Beyond all of the “you are there” features, like live-stream videos, instant runway photos, and video reviews, expect to find expanded news content, as well as additional opinion pieces from Vogue Runway’s top voices and in-depth coverage of fashion’s behind-the-scenes players.
Style.com’s success came not only from its editorial vision—to bring a wider public audience inside the shows and to do it faster and better than anyone else—but also from the dedication of all of you, its readers. I hope you’ll join all of us and help make a success of VogueRunway.com. If you have questions or concerns, I welcome your feedback in the comments section below.
