(NEW YORK) The founding editor-in-chief of Vogue Russia, Aliona Doletskaya, resigned earlier today, shocking staffers and the fashion world at large. “Aliona’s role in shaping the magazine is so unique that in a certain sense she is irreplaceable,” the president of Condé Nast International, Jonathan Newhouse, said in a memo to staffers obtained by The Daily.
“Some time ago, Aliona Doletskaya told me that she would like to leave the Vogue Russia editor-in-chief’s post, which she has occupied for almost 13 years, and start a new life, probably to write a book or try her hand in a new field,” said Newhouse. “As Russia—as well as the rest of the world—was still going through economically hard times, I asked Aliona to wait for a better time to do this. Now, it’s obvious that we are coming out of the crisis, thus I don’t want to interfere with Aliona’s plans anymore. I accept her decision to leave the magazine with great sorrow… In the near future we will announce the name of the next editor-in-chief of Vogue Russia.”
Doletskaya has been at the magazine since its launch in 1998, turning it into one of most powerful and respected Vogue editions worldwide.
