Generally it's the Bookings Editor, although recently magazines have expanded the purview of the Bookings Editor to cover everything from finalizing clothing pulls and assisting w trunk shows/events, etc, to selecting the models, etc...
Bookings editor mean different things to different magazines I think.... from what I'm familiar with, bookings editor are people who organise the models, the set, the photographer, the schedule, budgets, etc - all related to the shoot. They don't do any styling or writing - and they wouldn't be able to anyway since they're always so flat out! They sometimes also attend shoots to help out and generally make sure everything is running according to plan.

Fashion Magazine Positions- In Detail
I don't think this is a topic yet? Anyway, I thought it might be useful to get more information on all of those positions listed in fashion magazine mastheads; I know I don't know most of them, but I figured there were plenty of people on here that do and, together, we could explain most of them. I took this one out of Vogue US. I went up and listed all of them, though I think a number of them are pretty self explanatory, haha.

don't look down
There was a series of articles in UK Glamour where people at the magazine explained their positions, what was entailed and the route they took to get there. What was most interesting is that they included employees in sales/advertising and marketing - a lot of people tend to picture magazines purely in terms of editorial staff, when there are many more sections to consider, when it comes to producing a financially successful publication.
You're perfect, yes, it's true. But without me, you're only you.
Actually, we do have a thread about this, so they have been merged.
Don't forget ... there are lots of other types of entry level jobs (besides being an assistant), if you are just trying to break into a magazine with the hopes of getting promoted into something more exciting. This list is just the editorial departments ... but there are other ways to get a job at a magazine.
There are also receptionists, data entry clerks, accounting clerks, mail clerks, admin. assistants, and that's not even talking about the actual production of a magazine (graphic artists, typesetting ... and so on) and then there is the sales department working to get advertisers, which is where the money is made in publishing.
