BILLY SAYS ADIEU: After one year at Town & Country, Billy Norwich is leaving the magazine. When former editor in chief Stephen Drucker joined the title, he lured Norwich away from Vogue to join him at Town & Country as a special correspondent, occupying third place on the masthead below the editor and creative director David Lipman. Norwich was an integral part of Drucker’s vision to update the magazine’s coverage of fashion and the New Society (whatever that is). But Drucker exited in January and his successor, Jay Fielden, is putting together his own team. Norwich was told he would now be working exclusively as a writer. “Alas, there isn’t a Web site yet to satisfy the urge to write more in real time so I think it is really time for me to do something out of the box,” Norwich told WWD.
Fielden, who recently hired Alexandra Kotur from Vogue as creative director, said to expect more staffing changes soon. “We thank Billy for his contributions to the magazine during his tenure and look forward to publishing his freelance work if the opportunity presents itself,” Fielden said.
