TALKING, TALKING AND TALKING T: It’s the rumor that won’t go away. The talk of fashion and media circles continues to be centered on Deborah Needleman and her possible jump to T: The New York Times Style Magazine. On Thursday, insiders insisted that not only was Needleman going to T, but she was also planning to take a bunch of editors with her. It was believed that Needleman would make the transition from The Wall Street Journal to The Times following the collections in Europe. Reached by e-mail, Needleman said Thursday, “This is not true. If I had accepted a job there I would be working there.”

Not exactly a statement that clears the air — more like further muddying the waters.

As one source put it, the real question is whether Needleman will be at the collections in Europe on behalf of WSJ or T.
