W, magazine’s new editor in chief Stefano Tonchi has brought Jody Quon as the publication’s creative director.
Said Tonchi of the hire:
Jody has a background that goes beyond just beauty and fashion – she knows photojournalism, she knows images. She is open to not just traditional fashion photography.
I’ve been a big fan of her work in New York magazine, her use of talent and her imagination. I see her as somebody who cares as much about the cover of a magazine as the last page of a magazine.
The magazine’s former creative director, Dennis Freedman, left W shortly after Tonchi began.
