"Collectively, the five-person editorial board represents the next generation of Annas, Graydons and Graces."
Eric Wilson on the founders: Alexia Niedzielski, Elizabeth von Guttman, Jonathan Wingfield, Thomas Lenthal and Marie-Amélie Sauvé
“It’s a new magazine, and it’s not really a fashion magazine — fashion is just one part of it — so it let me give my opinion on something other than fashion,”
Marie-Amélie Sauvé on content.
Read T Magazine's at-a-glance profile on the magazine, due out in May. Hopefully then we'll get some insight on what Ghesquiere's been up to as that's what the cover suggests.

CHARLESTON FASHION WEEK
Antonio Azzuolo. Fern Mallis. Ashanti. Cynthia Rowley. Those were just a few of the names that were at Charleston Fashion Week 2013. And while I did work it - I was helping liase with those chosen to sit in the three rows of press seats - do not doubt that I got a chance to see the looks on the runway.left, look from a.a Antonio Azzuolo; right, look from Siobhan photos by Bob Mule.
I'm trying to come back.

Prince of Color, Queen of Prints.
This year, Chris Benz's shock of pink hair was replaced by Trina Turk's perfectly shaped bob - it does seem a tad "Wintour does dark" in only the best of ways - as the featured designer for the eleventh annual Girls Night Out, a signature fundraiser for EdVenture Children's Museum presented in part by Coplon's.
The event, as always, was a coup for Columbia, bringing a designer who sits firmly in the national arena of fashion, with even some international attention, within arms reach. (continued below)

In a move that was unexpected by most Anna Wintour was yesterday named artistic director of Condé Nast, a position to be held in tandem with her current editor-in-chief position at Vogue, and her editorial director position at Teen Vogue. The promotion will see Wintour's domain expand from two publications to 18, which include The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Glamour and GQ among others.
"I would go to great distances to avoid losing Anna, particularly in the prime of her career" said chief executive of Condé Nast, Charles H Townsend.
The position comes after a 25 year tenure at the top of the Vogue masthead.

Who thought that H&M would be the first seamlessly blend the editorial and commercial, and from the commercial side? Well maybe not the first but the interface is so sleek, the process so organic and the interface so friendly that the site seems a marvel.
At first glance it's a Tumblr-blog. With a combination of GIFs, product shots and what seems like street-style photos, It seems an inspiration board. And then you click to find each look comes with it's very own spread, very much like that of a magazine detailing every piece in the look. In just a few clicks the knitted navy sweater is purchased.
It truly is a lovely site, and with the first & Other Stories retail venture having just launched in London - coming soon to Copenhagen, Berlin, Paris, Barcelona and Milan - I'd love to know how it translates into a physical space.

"I'm not going to spend half of my fortune on just moving to New York. Plus, I'm a stubborn person and someone said the only way I'll ever make it is if I move to New York so I'm out to prove them wrong."
The Project Runway Allstars Season 2 winner is currently at NOLA Fashion Week and recently played emcee for the University of South Carolina's Project Condom Season 6. In a few weeks Anthony will be in Paris for a bit of involvement with a couture inspired show at the Louvre.
