Layoffs have already hit Style.com following yesterday's news that Condé Nast will migrate Style.com editorial content to Vogue and spin the site into Condé's ambitious e-commerce destination. WWD reports that at least 5 staff members at Style.com lost their jobs, including the site's photo editor and fashion market director. WWD also suggested that Style.com EIC Dirk Standen wasn't aware of what Condé Nast had in store for the site, although Standen wasn't available for comment. It's unclear what his new role will be at Vogue or if he will stay with the company.
Yesterday, Style.com posted a message to readers that states:
This fall, Style.com will become a new global e-commerce destination. At that time, our comprehensive fashion and runway coverage and much more will move to a newly expanded fashion shows channel of Vogue.com, to be found at Voguerunway.com. Until then, keep coming to Style.com for our daily fashion show coverage, industry news, parties, street style, and more.
