Fashionista Adds Two Editors-in-Chief

FashionistaEICsThey’re not officially on board until mid-November, but it’s never too early for a correction. In their brief introductory message on Fashionista, incoming EICs Lauren Indvik and Stephanie Trong (pictured l to r) let WWD know about a slight error:

It should be noted that WWD incorrectly reported that we are owned by Say Media. Though we love Say Media, we are a happy part of the Breaking Media family.

Indvik will be coming to Fashionista from Mashable, where she was an associate business editor covering retail, media and technology. Trong meanwhile has an even more impressive background. She was formerly executive editor at both Jane and NYLON magazines, as well as the deputy editor at Lucky magazine and editorial director at Gilt Groupe. She also helped oversee the expansion of The Cut at NYMag.com.

Fashionista.com Encourages Interns To Skip Classes

fashionista11.jpgFashion industry blog Fashionista.com is seeing a major overhaul this week: not only did editor Abby Gardner get the boot, but Fashion Week’s fast approach means that it’s time to hire free interns.

You can expect to get college credit for your work over at the Breaking Media site, but that might not be of much use as you’ll be kicked out of school for not attending class during Fashion Week: something that the Web site actively encourages, according to this job posting from yesterday.

The requirements read:

“We’ll need you at least two days a week until Fashion Week starts February 9th, during which we’ll need you more. How much more depends on your schedule, but you should be eager to skip class in favor of MILK. Our intern hours are officially 11 to 4, but again, once the week starts there’s no on/off.

Team Behind DealBreaker Takes On Accounting Industry

Breaking Media, the publisher of trade blogs DealBreaker, Above The Law and Fashionista, have launched a new venture, Going Concern, an online tabloid for accountants, CFOs and members of the business finance community.

Our colleagues at WebNewser have the scoop:

The company said Going Concern will focus on the “Big Four” accounting firms, smaller accounting firms and chief financial officers from major companies, offering original news and insider analysis. Subject matter will include budgeting and reporting; corporate finance and tax; cost management as a political priority; governance; risk and compliance; and cash management.

Going Concern’s founding editor is Caleb Newquist, a former KPMG auditor and tax accountant and who has blogged about the accounting profession at The 10-Key Tramp since 2008.

Fashionista.com Editor Departs

1027natalie-hormilla2_fa.jpgNatalie Hormilla is leaving Fashionista.com, the fashion site she edited. According to a goodbye email, she has no plans other than “spending a lot of time up in glorious Vermont through the end of summer/fall” and then returning to New York.

Breaking Media, the company that owns Fashionista along with Dealbreaker, Above the Law and Edificial, is seeking Hormilla’s replacement. Associate editor Britt Aboutaleb will helm the site for the near future.

Her farewell email after the jump.

Breaking Media Launches Edificial

edificial.pngSome people are still expanding! Breaking Media, the folks responsible for Fashionista, Above the Law, and Dealbreaker have just recently launched Edificial “a brutal (but constructive) architecture and design blog.” To be penned by Eva Hagberg and Ian Volner.

According to the site “Edificial fills the gap in narratively-focused gossip-friendly architecture coverage. We’re interested in the players, the stories, the deals, the history, the present, the future…We’ll be criticizing the criticizers.” Also, design! “We’re going to get involved in the play-by-play and pan out to take the long view. There will be roundups and linkdumps. There will also be longer essays and contributions from people we love.”

Not only that, Breaking Media managing editor David Lat tells us there is more to come: “We expect this to be the first of several launches for us in 2009. Despite the economy, Breaking Media is in expansion mode.”

Above the Law Blogger Moving Below 14th Street

DavidLat.jpgStart spreading the news. The BLT (Blog of Legal Times) is reporting that Above the Law blogger David Lat is coming our way. The former Underneath Their Robes anona-blogger is moving up the Breaking Media food chain, all the way to its Soho offices, to oversee all three of Breaking Media’s blogs, including ATL, Dealbreaker, and Fashionista, as well as, help “develop and launch new ones.” Lat says he will still contribute to ATL but that the tone of the blog will primarily depend on who they hire to take over. As to who will be filling his shoes, Lat tells us that they’re “still working” on finding his replacement, but that the “search is in the final stages” and they should have a new editor sometime next month.

In terms of the new blogs Lat will be working on, he tells FishbowlNY their content is “still under discussion.” However! “Should FishbowlNY readers have ideas, they should feel free to contact us! I can be reached through the contact info on Above the Law.” Hear that readers? Here’s your chance for media fame and fortune! Or something like that (does a semi-active Google alert count?).
