Instructor: Vanessa Friedman

Vanessa Friedman
Vanessa Friedman is the fashion director and chief fashion critic of The New York Times's Styles section.

She focuses on fashion as an expression of political, social and cultural identity at a specific time, especially how those in the public eye use it to communicate values and influence opinion.

Friedman joined The Times in 2014 after 11 years at the Financial Times. She was the FT's first fashion editor, and the FT was my first all-fashion job. Before that, Vanessa focused on culture coverage in magazines like InStyle, The Economist and The New Yorker. She is a Princeton University graduate with a B.A. in history.
