I am an arts and culture journalist and dress historian who specializes in the intersection of fashion, art, and design, whether it be artist-made jewelry or genre-bending designer retrospectives. I am currently a freelancer for Architectural Digest, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Christie's, TEFAF, The Art Newspaper, Artnet, ARTnews, and Digital Party. I also regularly contribute to fashion studies journals, such as Dress and The Journal of Dress History, and have presented my scholarship in New York, England, France, and Italy.
In January 2023, I was extremely honored to win the Créateurs Design Awards "Excellence in Creative Journalism" award for my first Harper's Bazaar story, which was about artist Anna Weyant’s debut solo show at Gagosian. I was previously nominated in 2022 for my Architectural Digest article on pioneering historic female designers and makers.
Another one of my proudest achievements is co-authoring Inside: At Home with Great Designers (Phaidon), which was published in September 2022. The book invites readers into the distinctive homes of 60 of today’s top interior designers, of which I profiled 36, including Sheila Bridges, Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent, André Fu, and Vincent Darré.
I also served as the project coordinator for the Thom Browne. monograph (Phaidon), publishing October 2023, which marks the company’s 20th anniversary.
What Makes Me Tick:
I welcome additional luxury-lifestyle editorial opportunities, and also aspire to curate exhibitions that utilize my costume-history skill set — think modern-day Diana Vreeland (but with the utmost historical accuracy!)
During 2020 I served as the Associate Digital Editor at Galerie magazine, where I wrote stories aligned with the company’s distinct “Live Artfully” lens. There, I also assisted with web development, social media, newsletter production, and several other areas of the business. Highlights include interviewing established and emerging artists, such as trailblazing blue-chip painter, Pat Steir, or Ghanaian portraitist, Kwesi Botchway, as well as a similar range of talent in fine jewelry and interior design.
Prior to that I was the Senior Writer/Producer on Sotheby’s New York editorial team, where I spent nearly five years creating content about luxury and fine art. I additionally led Sotheby's event coverage and partnership content for the Americas.
Past publications I have written for include The Hollywood Reporter, DuJour, Refinery29, Lucky, and The Fashion Studies Journal, among others. I have also conducted research for the CFDA’s and Booth Moore’s American Runway: 75 Years of Fashion and the Front Row, and New York Times best-selling author M.J. Rose.
In May 2019 I received my master's degree from New York University's Costume Studies program, after completing my thesis on Giovanni Boldini and his two muses, the Marchesa Casati and Rita Lydig.
