Deborah Needleman, the editor in chief of The Wall Street Journal’s style magazine, has been hired to run T: The New York Times Style Magazine, the Times announced Thursday. Ms. Needleman is taking over a franchise that publishes 15 magazines a year and is closely followed in the fashion industry.

Ms. Needleman will replace Sally Singer, a former Vogue editor who left The Times in August after running the T magazines for two years.

Jill Abramson, executive editor of The New York Times, said she expected Ms. Needleman to help drive T’s expansion.

“Deborah is a creative and innovative editor with an impeccable sense of style and design,” Ms. Abramson said in a statement. “As we look to expand and extend T and continue to evolve it for our loyal and sophisticated New York Times audience, we will rely on Deborah’s broad range of experience and creative energy. She is coming on board to strengthen the franchise and reimagine its future on all platforms.”

In addition to running The Journal’s style magazine, WSJ, Ms. Needleman oversaw the paper’s weekend lifestyle section, called Off Duty. Earlier in her career she founded the style and decorating magazine Domino, and was an editor at large for House Garden. She also co-authored ”Domino: The Book of Decorating” and wrote ”The Perfectly Imperfect Home.”
