I write about the fashion and luxury industries for The New York Times and am based in Europe. Before joining the New York Times in London in the summer of 2015, I spent 8 months as a reporter on the FT main news desk in London covering breaking news. Until December 2014, I was the FT's Fashion and Luxury Correspondent based in New York. In that role, I reported on corporate company and market activity from across the fashion, beauty and broader retail and consumer worlds. Prior to joining the FT in 2011, I was the assistant online editor at the Sunday Times Style magazine in London.
