Top Editors Are Leaving British Vogue

It's been a busy press week for British Vogue and unfortunately not in a good way. The leading magazine has seen two high level editors depart and all in the span of a few days. It was announced most recently that Kate Phelan, the publication's well respected fashion director, will be making a switch over to Topshop to be creative director of the High Street brand. Phelan had been at British Vogue for 18 years and began her career as a fashion assistant there. This news is coming off the heels of Robin Derrick's resignation, the magazine's creative director, which was made public earlier this week. [Telegraph UK]
