LAT getting a new Image

The Times plans to launch its long-discussed Image section on March 18, the first day of Los Angeles Fashion Week, says. Rose Apodaca, the former West Coast bureau chief for Women's Wear Daily, will serve as consulting editor until a permanent editor is found. I had reported the delay of Image back in 2003, so the idea of a personal appearance and image section has been lingering awhile.
