Paperwork was filed at Companies House, the official registry of all U.K. businesses, in mid-October.

She also currently serves as the head of the British Fashion Council. [WWD]

After only one year at the helm of Nylon magazine, Michelle Lee is leaving her post as editor-in-chief of the indie fashion glossy. Taking her place is current deputy editor Melissa Giannini, whose new post is effective immediately. In the press release, chief revenue officer Sean Cullinane emphasized the magazine's multiplatform approach to production, which only serves to fuel rumors that the mag, like Nylon Guys before it, might be going all-digital soon.
