For months there's been speculation that Lucky magazine was on the brink of closing shop, especially after the glossy got the boot from it's home in the Conde Nast building and formed a separate company with e-commerce site Beachmint (which totally had everyone scratching their heads). Now, EIC Eva Chen has confirmed that she is leaving. The editor in chief took to Twitter last Thursday to make the announcement, saying that she will "be transitioning from the brand in the coming months." Chen also noted that it was an "intensely personal/difficult decision" and she plans to "spend some time with family." And while The Lucky Group had no further news, WWD is reporting that Lucky will be shutting down its print operations to go completely digital. Could it be that Chen is jumping ship before the whole thing sinks? Possibly. Either way, we're certain we'll see her name on another masthead soon.

Working at Delta is about to get a whole lot more glamorous thanks to Zac Posen; the designer is creating new uniforms for the flight attendants and airport customer service agents. Delta’s ramp and ground support agents, Delta Cargo agents, and Delta TechOps employees will also receive new uniforms, however Posen isn't designing them, but will act as an advisor during the design process. The designer is taking the next few months to consult with various Delta employees to find out what they want in a uniform and what will be most functional for them, then prototypes will be made, and finally the finished product. The new uniforms are expected to be released in early 2018.
