With Deborah Needleman just starting to get comfortable as the new editor of T: The New York Times Style Magazine, WWD reports that staffers from WSJ. are following her there. WSJ.’s fashion features director Whitney Vargas and creative director Patrick Li are both expected to join the staff of T soon, with more to follow.
Vargas has been with WSJ. since 2010. She had previously served as Elle’s senior fashion news editor.
Li resigned from WSJ. last week. He had been with the magazine since last May. He was the founder of the design firm Li Inc., and has worked with Vogue China, Jason Wu, Rodarte and more.
