Robin Givhan
DeNeen Brown
TO THE NATION’S CAPITAL: Robin Givhan, staff writer at The Washington Post, will be moving to Washington to cover Michelle Obama, the First Family and the assorted cultural and social issues that surround them. Givhan, who currently is based in New York, told WWD she’ll continue to write a weekly column that will focus on fashion but that could include anything from a designer, the shows or a “politician looking especially appalling.” Givhan is taking over for DeNeen Brown, who will now focus on stories about people “on the edge,” such as the poor, the uneducated, the disenfranchised and “race in the age of Obama.” — Amy Wicks, WWD
