A couple morning moves to note, regarding The Fader and Style.com. Below are the details.
- Malcolm Campbell has been named The Fader’s VP of business development, a new role at the magazine. Campbell comes to The Fader from amNewYork, where he served as senior advertising director. Prior to that he served as publisher of Spin for five years.
- Style.com has added Amber Kallor as senior beauty editor. Kallor most recently served as beauty editor of Shape. She will report to Style.com’s executive editor, Nicole Phelps.
There have been two changes at Fairchild Fashion Media. Pamela Daniels has joined the company as the new publisher of Beauty, Inc. Daniels comes to Fairchild from Rodale, where she served as business development director since February. She will report to Paul Jowdy, vice president, publisher of WWD.
Additionally, Matt Rice has been promoted to associate publisher of Style.com, NowManifest and Style.com/Print. Rice was most recently advertising director for Fairchild.
Style.com has launched an Editors’ Diary where staff share photos from their road travels in places like London, Milan, Paris, and of course New York.
The diary is intended to provide backstage and behind-the-scenes shots while giving viewers an inside look at the making of Style.com/Print issue 2 which will hit newsstands on April 2nd.
The first issue of Style.com/Print launched in October.
Style.com says that its second issue will:
…take you even further inside the world of fashion. We’ll go behind the scenes at the making of the season’s most important shows. From the designer’s studio to the model casting to the runway and after-party, we’ll zoom in on the insiders who take the collections from inception to execution. We’re even planning a side trip to L.A. for the Oscars—we hear they’re kind of a big deal—to see what really goes into creating those red-carpet moments.
When FishbowlNY heard in April that Fairchild was launching a print version of Style.com, we first thought of the Bizarro Jerry episode of “Seinfeld.” A website becoming a magazine is the exact opposite of the way things should be, much like the “Bizarro” friends Elaine makes are the opposite of Jerry, George and Kramer (Memorable exchange: Elaine: “They read.” Jerry: “I read.” Elaine: “Books, Jerry.” Jerry: “Oh… big deal!”). But Style.com/Print — yes, that’s the name — is happening, and it’s hitting newsstands next week.
Along with that terrible name, the contents of the first issue don’t sound enticing either. The New York Times reports that all the content is brisk, and some pieces are simply ripped straight from the Internet, such as a collection of Twitter updates and a list of which fashion shows got the most page views on Style.com. Brilliant, right? Well, that’s not even the worst part. While the focus of the issue is on spring fashion, all the ads feature fall clothing.
One would think that at some point, someone — anyone, a janitor for god’s sake — at Fairchild would’ve said, “You know, maybe Style.com/Print isn’t the best idea.” But that would mean everything would’ve happened like it does in real life, and Fairchild appears to be living in a Bizarro world.
According to Adweek, Fairchild Fashion Group – in an effort to increase its consumer presence – is launching a print version of its website, style.com.
Launching the print venture is the (sort of) easy part, making it successful, that’s another story. But apparently Fairchild feels confident that the Style.com brand will carry it through. One piece of advice: Put Kim Kardashian on the cover of every issue. Like her or not, that woman moves print.
In the past few weeks, more layoffs have come to almost every surviving Condé Nast title, and all of them (except maybe The New Yorker) will likely experience cuts before the end of the year — if not the end of the week.
Read on for a round up of layoffs at Condé Nast that we’ve heard of so far. Know of any that we missed? Drop us a note.
In 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.”

AgencySpy: USA TODAY reporter Theresa Howard, who has been covering consumer marketing and advertising for the nation’s most read paper, is leaving her beat to join the enemy. She’s joining Crispin Porter + Bogusky as a copywriter.
Forbes: A new report shows that marketers will pay publishers an average of $2.27 for every reader they can get to enter information on their Web site. “That hefty price suggests publishers should consider abandoning cheap ads sold for guaranteed prices and should instead try to use space on their Web pages to convince readers to turn over their personal information.”
