Condé Nast has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons lately. The publisher makes news again today for laying off Glamour's design director Sarah Vinas and accessories director Gretchen Gunlocke Fenton, The Daily Front Row reports. Unfortunately, the two join a long list of people who have been let go from Condé Nast in the past couple weeks as the publisher makes changes to GQ and Teen Vogue, switches up leadership at Allure, and shuts down Details. Seven were let go from GQ while over 55 employees lost their jobs as part of the Details shut down.
"We have eliminated a handful of editorial positions," a Glamour spokesperson told The Daily Front Row. "Innovation remains our biggest priority and we will continue to invest across the board in tools, staffing, and a diverse range of inspiring content across all platforms." There will certainly be more bad news coming out of Condé Nast HQ as the company attempts to overhaul and cut costs. Rumors are already swirling that Teen Vogue will meet the same fate as Details, which is now transitioning into GQStyle.com, and the now defunct Style.com, which melted into Vogue Runway.
