Rocking the fashion world at the moment is the news Nina Garcia has parted ways with Elle magazine, causing a hubbub of whispers around mag-land the fashion director did not leave on her own terms.

Garcia, who also moonlights as a Project Runway judge, has apparently stepped down from her post at the magazine, after months of speculation of a riff between her and creative director Joe Zee. Both Fashion Week Daily and WWD said she attended several fashion events last week but her no-show at an Elle-hosted dinner for author Simon Doonan was extremely noticeable.

There is yet to be official confirmation from either Elle or Garcia - who when contacted, neither confirmed or denied the rumour. "I have not heard anything," she told The Daily.
