Steigrad writes, “Binkley confirmed the news, offering that she will be leaving in early January but that she will occasionally freelance for the paper. The journalist said her next project will involve writing two books ‘on the fashion space.’
“‘This is something that I’ve wanted to do for some time,’ said Binkley, who has already nabbed a publisher for the project. She would not provide further details of her books, but said that at least one will entail that she covers fashion week in the U.S. and Europe.
“‘I will be around for the shows. I’ve already booked my hotels,’ she said with a laugh.
