Fashion News: Constance White Exits Her Post at Essence

Two years after her entrance into the Editor-in-chief role at Essence, Constance White is exiting the glossy according to Maynard Institute:

The reason why you might ask? The magazine is cutting hundreds of jobs (yes I was surprised to know Essence had that many employees as well) including the roles of Corynne L. Corbett, the Beauty Editor, and Greg Monfries, the Creative Director. White is a force in the fashion industry, having held coveted positions as the founder of Talk Magazine, the Executive Fashion Editor for Elle, a Style Reporter for The New York Times, and an Associate Editor for Women’s Wear Daily and W Magazine.


Until the magazine finds a replacement, Executive Editor Vanessa Bush will act as Managing Editor.


Quite shocking as I think White has done a great job with revamping the magazine and producing great content. I guess we’ll all be waiting to see where she ends up next.
