It might have seemed like the changes at W magazine might never end, but according to the magazine's new editor Stefano Tonchi, the last of the staffing upheaval took place on Thursday. Treena Lombardo, market director for W, and accessories and jewellery director Brooke Magnaghi were replaced by former T employee Karla Martinez, who will take on both roles as fashion market director.
Rumour has it that fashion director Alex White will keep her place at the magazine, as she is said to be shooting stories for the September issue, whilst Terry Richardson is back shooting for the magazine - the shoot with White will be Richardson's first since 1996, after he reportedly offended former W art director Dennis Freedman with a photograph of a model with her head in an oven. "I think we should be set" Tonchi told WWD. Look out for the September issue of W magazine, which will be the first with the complete redesign by Tonchi. In the meantime, the W staff saga might finally be able to be laid to rest.
