Michele Lavery is now head of fashion, luxury and magazines at the group, while Lisa Armstrong is fashion director.
Fashion Reshuffle: Following a number of redundancies at Britain’s Daily and Sunday Telegraph newspapers late last month — some of which affected its fashion department — the Telegraph Media Group said Friday that it had restructured the newspapers’ fashion and luxury teams.
Michele Lavery — formerly editor of the Telegraph Magazine, the paper’s Saturday magazine – is now head of fashion, luxury and magazines at Telegraph Media Group. In the new role she will oversee all fashion and luxury content online; in The Daily Telegraph; the Telegraph Magazine; Stella (The Sunday Telegraph’s fashion magazine); Luxury, its luxury supplement and all the magazine supplements.
Among the other promotions are Lisa Armstrong, who was promoted from fashion editor to fashion director; Belinda White, who is is now digital fashion director and luxury editor; Tamsin Blanchard, now fashion features director, Telegraph Magazine and Kate Finnigan, who has been named fashion features director, Stella Magazine. Daniella Agnelli, formerly fashion director at the Telegraph Magazine, has been appointed fashion editor at large, and will contribute to shoots for the paper’s ST supplements and its Telegraph Magazine fashion supplement.
All the appointments are effective immediately. Lavery commented: “The last few years have seen TMG grow and develop its fashion and luxury offering across all platforms,” she said. “This restructure enables us to continue to entertain, inform and inspire our audience with our innovative coverage of all aspects of the fashion industry.”
