WHITE DEPARTS: EBay’s style director, Constance White, is leaving the company. The former New York Times writer told WWD that while it was exciting to marry the Internet with fashion (she’s been at eBay for seven years, way before a majority of fashion brands joined the Web), it’s time to move on. She declined to provide more information, adding her new gig will be unveiled soon. Sources said the timing of White’s departure comes as the company moves from trying to upgrade its fashion coverage to now making it more about creating an outlet-type store online. But there’s a possibility White might not be completely severing ties with the company. An eBay spokeswoman pointed out that a new, enhanced shopping experience for clothing, shoes and accessories made its debut during the spring on the eBay Marketplace. As eBay’s fashion category continues to evolve, the spokeswoman continued, the company is exploring a “redefined role” for White, “as we look to diversify our roster of style experts and editorial contributors to include other taste makers such as Annabel Tollman, Rebecca Weinberg, Kate Young, Estee Stanley and Britt Bardo.” — Amy Wicks
