SWAPPING TITLES: In the second series of appointments in as many weeks, Fairchild Fashion Group president and chief executive Richard Beckman tapped three associate publishers for WWD on Monday — Erica Bartman, Elizabeth Webbe Lunny and Paula Fortgang. Bartman was previously an associate publisher at Vogue, where she helped launch Teen Vogue and Men’s Vogue. She was also publisher of Allure from 1998 to 2000. Lunny has been a corporate sales director for Condé Nast Media Group since 2004, and also has been the accessories director for Vogue. Fortgang was most recently advertising director, international fashion for Vanity Fair. She has also held the position of fashion director for The New Yorker and Vanity Fair, and was corporate fashion director at the Condé Nast Media Group.
“Erica, Paula and Elizabeth are some of the best professionals I have worked with in my time at Condé Nast,” said Beckman. “Each will bring great intelligence and intensity to their new positions at Women’s Wear Daily.”
Succeeding Fortgang at Vanity Fair will be Amber Estabrook, who was previously executive director of international fashion at Vogue, and worked at W as fashion and luxury director and later executive director of luxury. — Stephanie D. Smith
