Meet Joe McKenna, T Magazine's New Fashion Director at Large
Deborah Needleman announced on Tuesday that she's hired Joe McKenna — a stylist who's worked for Vogue, V magazine, and Yves Saint Laurent — as T magazine's fashion director at large. McKenna might not be a household name, but he's spent decades creating iconic images with photographers like Bruce Weber, Steven Klein, and Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. In 2007, T credited McKenna with helping "define the visual identity of clients like Calvin Klein, Versace, Banana Republic, and Jil Sander." br> In his new role, Needleman says, McKenna will create several spreads a year for T and will be "heavily involved" in overseeing the magazine's fashion stories. And with a track record that spans decades of editorial and advertising assignments, McKenna seems perfectly primed for the challenge. Take a look at some of his past work here in the gallery. br> Photo: Shalom Harlow in Jason Wu's Fall 2012 ad campaign, styled by Joe McKenna.
