Confirmed: Longtime Creative Director Dennis Freedman Leaving W; Camilla Nickerson Likely Switching to Vogue

>> Just a week after Stefano Tonchi was confirmed as the new editor-in-chief of W, comes the announcement that, as expected, longtime creative director Dennis Freedman is leaving the magazine.

Freedman, who has been at W for almost twenty years, confirmed the news to WWD: “I have had the most extraordinary experience working with some of the most talented and brilliant photographers, artists and editors in the world, and these collaborations have brought me unbelievable joy and satisfaction. For me, this has been one of the greatest opportunities I could ever hope for.”

Meanwhile, W's senior contributing fashion editor Camilla Nickerson is said to be heading back to Vogue as a contributing editor. Reached by phone, Nickerson told WWD she couldn’t comment. Vogue also declined comment. More departures from the magazine are likely — fashion director Alex White, who reportedly campaigned for the editor-in-chief role, was photographed working with Karl Lagerfeld on the Fall 2010 Chanel campaign shoot around the time when Tonchi was scheduled to first address the W staff.
