It’s been a busy month for Condé Nast.
Fairchild Fashion Media
In an effort to refocus on its consumer brands, Condé Nast is selling Fairchild Fashion Media—owner of B-to-B publications Women’s Wear Daily, Footwear News and Beauty, Inc.—to Penske Media Corporation
Peter Kaplan, who edited The New York Observer for 15 years before becoming the editorial director of Fairchild Fashion Media, died Friday at the age of 59. The cause was the effects of lymphoma, WWD reported.
Every year at the end of its annual publisher’s conference, Condé Nast hands out awards to its top-performing employees.
More good news for the 1 percent: Fairchild Fashion Media, the Condé Nast division responsible for publishing Women’s Wear Daily, is relaunching men’s fashion title M as a quarterly magazine beginning this fall. The original M, which launched in 1983, was helmed by Jane Lane and, later, by onetime Adweek editor Clay Felker.
