Ask the Library

Is it "WWD" or "Women's Wear Daily"?

It's both!

Technically, according to some of the  people who determine these things (a/k/a  Library catalogers  or Cataloging or Metadata Librarians), the paper was officially
Women's Wear from 1910-1926 (when it was published weekly)
Women's Wear Daily from 1927-1975
WWD from 1976-the present.
The online version has been WWD from its start.
