The result of Condé Nast shuttering Details and combining Self and Glamour’s ad staff isn’t pretty. According to WWD, 55 people are now out of jobs.
Details employed 40 full and part-time editorial staffers and 27 ad sales staffers. Of those, only 12 are getting new roles at GQStyle.com, which will soon take the place of Details.com.
Self staffers who remain employed should thank Condé artistic director and Vogue editor Anna Wintour. Apparently Condé execs were mulling several options, one of them being shuttering Self instead of Details. Wintour stuck up for Self, and her support saved it.
