>> More Changes at W: A New Design Director, John Fairchild's Column Discontinued
—Stefano Tonchi has appointed his new design director at W: Joseph Logan, a Vogue Paris and Artforum alum, who starts work next week. Tonchi also apparently decided to discontinue the satirical social column written by 83-year-old John Fairchild, son of WWD's founder and former chairman and editorial director of Fairchild Publications, under the pseudonym Countess Louise J. Esterhazy. The last column appears in W's June 2010 issue. Fairchild seemed surprised by the decision: "I didn't know it was ending. They never even asked me for a final column . . . I don't know what's happened, really. I know there's a new editor, and he's very talented. I got paid to write it and that's what I'll miss the most." [@womensweardaily, WSJ]
