Wendy Goodman has been New York’s Design Editor since October 2007. She was previously the magazine’s interior design editor from 1997 - 2007, and was New York’s fashion editor under editor-in-chief Ed Kosner from 1984 - 1989. As design editor, Goodman is responsible for New York’s twice-annual design issues and regular “Great Room” features. She also produces the weekly online feature “Design Hunting.”
Before re-joining New York magazine in 1997 Goodman was the style director at Harper’s Bazaar under Liz Tilberis, producing and writing style, interior design and architecture stories.
Prior to her work at Bazaar, Goodman covered the world of style and fashion for House and Garden, tracking fashion designers and artists at home and traveling to the Paris, Milan and New York shows. Goodman returned to House and Garden as Design Director in 2007, but returned to New York after House and Garden ceased publication.
Goodman’s career began in fashion at Harper’s Bazaar, from which she went on to the New York Times Magazine where she wrote and produced fashion pages.
Goodman is the co-author, with Hutton Wilkinson, of Tony Duquette, published in 2007 by Abrams. Her second book for Abrams, The World of Gloria Vanderbilt, was published in 2010.
Wendy Goodman lives in the Village and was born and raised in New York.
