Panel Discussion: Why Are So Many of Today’s Fashion Editors So Young?

Several of the editors and writers at LOL were taking a coffee break in between shows during NY fashion week a number of years back, when one person suddenly asked,”Why are so many of today’s fashion editors young? Is this good or bad for fashion?” LOL decided to investigate. We surveyed members of the fashion community to get their take. Some of them have been in the business for as little as three years and others for more than 20. The one thing they had in common: interesting, bold opinions. So, are young fashion editors good or bad for the fashion industry? Go to and judge for yourself.

(Editor’s note: This discussion was held in 1998. It is as true today as when we first wrote this article.)



Ernest Schmatolla is publisher of Lookonline since 1994. It is the longest running fashion site on the Internet.
