The end of Jackie?
The entire editorial staff of Dutch Fashion Magazine Jackie has resigned. After the “Niggabitch” scandal former editor in chief Eva Hoeke was replaced by Dutch stylist Bastiaan van Schaik early this year. The former editorial department and the new editor in chief were struggling quite a bit.
According to Van Schaik he had to make a clean sweep and currently is looking for a new editorial team. But former editor Wendy van Poort sees it differently; the department was not laid off at all. The teams vision and van Schaik’s ideas were zillion miles apart. There was only one way to go…
I have never seen a entire editorial department leave in such hasty abandon. Was Van Schaik the right man to pick up Jackie and save it’s reputation?
