A Raleigh Good Move
John Drescher comes home to take the managing editor job at North
Carolina's News & Observer.
By Kathryn S. Wenner
John Drescher switches Carolinas as he becomes managing editor of Raleigh, North Carolina's News & Observer. Drescher, 42, who moved to Raleigh when he was 10, started at the N&O right out of school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His new boss, Executive Editor Melanie Sill, was a fellow staffer on the school paper. Drescher became managing editor at the State in Columbia, South Carolina, in 2000, after 12 years at the Charlotte Observer, covering state government and climbing the ranks as an editor. As a reporter, he got to know former U.S. Sen. Terry Sanford, D-N.C., and two years ago published a book about Sanford's successful 1960 campaign for governor, "Triumph of Good Will: How Terry Sanford Beat a Champion of Segregation and Reshaped the South." The McClatchy-owned N&O has "always been a vigorous watchdog. I think North Carolina is better for that," Drescher says. "I think my job is just to keep the momentum up."###

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet
it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags
early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags
logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
