Glamour magazine’s new fashion director, Jillian Davison, was welcomed to the glossy with an intimate cocktail party at Omar’s in the West Village on Wednesday night, fashion world insiders tell Confidenti@l. Editor-in-chief Cindi Leive toasted the fabulous Davison before a packed crowd of fashionistas from the world of high style, including shoe designer Brian Atwood, famed photog Patrick Demarchelier, stunning French model Constance Jablonski, designer Kenneth Cole, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) CEO Steven Kolb and designers Derek Lam, Thakoon Panichgul, Prabal Gurung and Narciso Rodriguez. Davison had arrived in January and formerly worked in Australia for Vogue Australia as their creative director and Harper’s Bazaar Australia. She also worked at the U.S. edition of Harper’s Bazaar. She was named Glamour’s fashion director in November 2013, after Anna Wintour was promoted to artistic director of Condé Nast and shook up the Glamour masthead. No doubt Davison knows what Wintour wants. She spent six years as a contributing editor at Teen Vogue before leaving in 2010.
