Nina Garcia Is In at Marie Claire

Fashion Week Daily has confirmed that Nina Garcia has accepted an offer from Hearst Corporation and will be joining Marie Claire as its new fashion director in the fall. Meanwhile rumors about Marie Claire replacing Elle as Project Runway‘s sponsor still have not been confirmed, but a source tells FWD that “negotiations are just starting, if even that,” and that Ms. Garcia’s hire at the magazine is “completely separate from Marie Claire‘s possible interest in Project Runway.”

An official announcement from Hearst is expected by the end of the week.
