UK fashion business publication Drapers has announced a number of editorial upates. Keely Stocker has been promoted to the position of deputy editor. Since the end of May 2014, Keely has been acting deputy editor (during Ana Santi’s maternity leave), while still covering the many responsibilities of online editor and guiding the redevelopment of Drapers’ site, app etc. Following on from Keely’s new role, James Knowles has been promoted from features and special reports editor to the new role of online content editor. He will keep his responsibilities for special projects and other commercially-related initiatives. Keely has begun to hand over some of her online responsibilities to James, who will continue to contribute across other areas of Drapers. Associate editor Kat Spybey will be picking James’s feature responsibilities, adding to her wide-ranging senior role across Drapers’ departments and channels. Kat has taken on some of Keely’s online responsibilities during the past six months and this will continue as Drapers reorganises its production process to be digital-first. Features and special reports writer Charlotte Rogers will report to Kat on features and to James on special projects. Samantha Warrington has joined Drapers as head of content production, succeeding Steve Draper, who left at the beginning of July. Samantha will be responsible for ensuring a high standard of subbing across all channels and her new title (replacing production editor) reflects the title’s new way of working.
