Condé Nast Cuts Hit Style.com

prattsprice.jpgIn the past few weeks, Condé Nast has laid off an estimated 400 people. Add these fashion editor powerhouses to the list of canned Condé employees: Style.com‘s senior features editor Laird Borrelli-Persson and executive fashion director Candy Pratts Price (right).

Fashion Week Daily reports that Borelli-Persson will leave the site at the end of 2009, and Pratts Price’s contract — set to expire early next year — will not be renewed. As it stands now, it looks like Pratts Price will continue to contribute to Vogue, which shares its content on Style.com. Says the fashion trade:

“Pratts Price has long been listed as a contributing editor on the Vogue masthead, and will continue to be indefinitely. Her relationship with Anna Wintour began in the late ’80s when she served as fashion director of accessories at the fashion title…’Candy Pratts Price will continue to work for Vogue, and that includes working on Vogue.com,’ said a Vogue spokesperson.”
