According to an article on Daily Front Row, Jody Quon has resigned her post as W Magazine creative director just three issues into the re-launch of the magazine under the guidance of Stefano Tonchi.
Sources at W told the fashion Web site that Quon’s split with W was by mutual decision, and that she would not be replaced.
When we interviewed Quon just a couple of months ago for an article about W’s new direction, she enthused about the new take on style that would define the magazine and spoke about the opportunity to be think differently with how photography, and photographers, would be showcased within it’s pages.
It all sounded pretty promising. Apparently working for Conde Nast is a bit like working for the late George Steinbrenner these days.
