(NEW YORK) It's official: Hilary Alexander is leaving her position as fashion director of The Daily Telegraph at the end of June. The editor confirmed her departure today via Twitter. She will be replaced by two fashion writers, Lisa Armstrong and Luke Leitch, both currently of The Times. Born in New Zealand, Alexander has spent much of her career in the U.K.. She was named British Fashion Journalist of the Year, twice in 1998 and 2003. In May 2001, she was awarded the title of visiting professor by the University of Arts, London, which oversees Central Saint Martins and London College of Fashion, as well as the Chelsea and Camberwell art colleges. Her television experience includes roles as a stylist for Britain's Next Top Model; she has also appeared on The Weakest Link and, frankly, too many fashion programs to mention. A beloved front-row fixture at the couture and ready-to-wear collections, as well as far-flung fashion weeks all over the globe, Alexander is widely admired for her conversational interview style and long-term friendships with the top designers in the world. She stands, quite literally, among just a handful of the industry's top journalists (such as Suzy Menkes and Cathy Horyn) in terms of reputation, access, and influence. No doubt her 166,019 Twitter followers are eager to learn her plans for "retirement."
