Russell Move to Architectural Digest Marks End of One Era, Start of Another
August 9, 2010,
NEW YORK - It was perhaps the most sought-after job in shelter magazine publishing and now Margaret Russell has it.
The Conde Nast announcement last week that Russell had been named editor of Architectural Digest - considered the grande dame of the business - was not totally unexpected as it followed much speculation within the trade.
No successor was named at Elle Decor, which no doubt will set off a new round of speculation on what happens there. Russell begins her new job on Sept. 7 and in the process the AD editorial offices will move from Los Angeles, where they had been under Rense, to New York.
