Online fashion publication Vestoj recently published an interview in which Lucinda Chambers says she was fired from British Vogue.
According to an article on The Fashion Law, online fashion publication Vestoj recently published an interview in which Lucinda Chambers says she was fired from British Vogue. In May, it was announced that Chamber had resigned as fashion director of the magazine.
Chambers not only said that she had been fired instead of resigning, she talked about everything from the hiring of Edward Enninful as Editor in Chief to how uninspiring fashion publications are.
Chambers said, “a month and a half ago I was fired from Vogue. It took them three minutes to do it. No one in the building knew it was going to happen. The management and the editor I’ve worked with for twenty-five years had no idea. Nor did HR.”
Chamber also talked about how fashion magazines advertise saying, “in fashion we are always trying to make people buy something they don’t need. We don’t need any more bags, shirts or shoes. So we cajole, bully or encourage people to continue buying.”
She continued to say, “the June cover with Alexa Chung in a stupid Michael Kors T-shirt is crap. He’s a big advertiser so I knew why I had to do it.”
The interview, called “Will I Get A Ticket? A Conversation About Life After Vogue with Lucinda Chambers”, was published on Monday. It was, however, removed from Vestoj’s website a couple of hours later.
It was speculated that Vestoj and Chamber had received a cease and desist letter from Vogue’s parent company Condé Nast. It was also said Condé Nast could file a lawsuit against both Vestoj and Chambers.
The article was, however, republished the next day.
Vestoj released a statement saying, “due to the sensitive nature of this article, we took the decision to temporarily remove it from the site. We have now republished it in its entirety.”
The publication continued to explain that the article had been removed because of the same “bullying” Chamber had talked about in her interview.
Chambers did not respond to requests for comment.
