NYT Fashion Director Vanessa Friedman: ‘I Get a Lot of Feedback’

HaaretzLogoEarly on in Haaretz’s interview article with New York Times fashion director and chief fashion critic Vanessa Friedman, the former Financial Times reporter pays the readers at her new place of employment a solid compliment:

ChemiShavelLogoChemi Shalev, New York-based U.S. editor for Haaretz, has a fun interview with Clyde Haberman, a reporter who very recently wrapped up 36 years of stalwart service with the New York Times. When you’ve had as long and varied a career as Haberman, the lede for a third-party article pretty much writes itself:

“Your health is everything,” the veteran New York Times journalist responded. “You should stop reading.”
