Changes are already being made to the Style.com staff in the wake of this week’s announcement that the website would be switching to an e-commerce platform. The plan was to move many of the staffers to American Vogue at vogerunway.com, but it already looks like some members of the Style.com team won’t even make it that far.
Page Six reports that the layoffs at the website have already begun and HR is already firing or reassigning people. Apparently, a few people have been told their days are numbered at Condé Nast and rumor has it that fashion market editor Rachael Wang is one of the names on the chopping block.
We’ll be keeping our ear to the ground for more changes at the website as they occur. The new Style.com site will sell luxury fashion, tech items, beauty, gifts and more and is expected to launch in the U.K. this fall, with plans to expand operations to the U.S. in early 2016.
