Layoffs at Style.com

Comments | | Print

(NEW YORK) Layoffs have hit Condé Nast Digital as part of the oft-discussed corporately-mandated cost reductions, and they are affecting some of Style.com's marquee editors. Senior features editor Laird Borrelli-Persson will leave the site at the end of 2009, The Daily has learned, and executive fashion director Candy Pratts Price's contract with Style.com will not be renewed upon its expiration date in early 2010.

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. Pratts Price is rumored to have spent as much time in the Vogue offices at 4 Times Square as she did at Style.com HQ on Avenue of the Americas. "Candy Pratts Price will continue to work for Vogue, and that includes working on Vogue.com," said a Vogue spokesperson. Questions about the evolving relationship between Vogue.com and Style.com remain, but for now, what will happen to the industry's beloved Candycast?
