Blog: So long, farewell

Petah Marian | 27 September 2013

A slight change in direction means that today will be my last day with just-style.

So much has changed in the apparel industry over the past two years - sustainability is becoming increasingly important, while there is now a real sense of urgency around improving safety conditions in Bangladesh.

This is an exciting time to be in the apparel industry and an exciting time to be writing about the industry.

The greatest pleasure in this job has been getting to know the just-style community at various gatherings around the world.

I'll still be writing about the apparel industry, albeit with a slightly different focus, so I look forward to bumping into many of you soon in my new role.

In the meantime, I leave you in Leonie and Katie's very dependable hands, and hope the next news and insights editor of just-style enjoys their tenure as much as I have.
