Vanessa Friedman from New York Times, The Forefront Of Fashion Row
Vanessa Friedman's name is practically synonymous with fashion. As the venerable Fashion Director and Chief Fashion Critic at The New York Times since 2014, she is considered by many to be the utmost authority on fashion journalism. She is revered my many, and feared by many, as her critiques can make or break the youngest or most established of fashion designers.
Undiscovered designers and large, established fashion brands wait with same baited breath to read her words; and that's only if you're lucky enough to have garnered her attention in one of her coveted, must-read New York Times articles. She is never far from the front row of many a fashion show come Fashion Week, whether it's Fashion Week in New York, Milan, Paris or London.
