Who can wait that long? From the press release:

IMAGE promises a host of regular columns and features, including Booth Moore’s “Style Notebook,” a critical look at the global intersections of fashion and pop culture; profiles of the industry’s most important players, style icons and insiders; a “Your Stylist” advice column featuring a rotating cast of prominent experts; “L.A. Style Files,” a snapshot out of the archives of stylish Angelenos; “The Waitlist” and a comprehensive guide to new stores, sample sales, warehouse sales and more.

New hires Fashion Market Editor Melissa Magsaysay, formerly of WWD and Staff Writer Adam Tschorn, formerly West Coast Editor of DNR, round out the team.

FBLA wants this section to be wonderful.
