We are thrilled to announce that Anthony (Tony) Rotunno, Marriage Bureau Editor of The New York Times, has joined our Styles Bureau as Fashion News Editor. It will focus on expanding the desk’s service journalism as well as its coverage of design, trends and how fashion and style travel from runways to our daily lives on the street and at home.

Since joining the Times last year, Tony has overseen reporting on fashion designer Rosie Assoulin first bridal collection, vintage shops off the beaten track and a new one set of tasters who found inspiration in Shakers. His instinct for taking the cultural temperature stretched from calling Scottsdale, Arizona, a destination for bachelor debaucheryto notice that cannibalism had a moment. He also helped launch a new column for Styles, Consume Allon the ambient shopping trends that invade our social media feeds, demanding to be identified.

Prior to joining the Times, Tony was editor of New York magazine’s Strategist section and website, and editor of the Brooklyn Paper, where his work earned him the No. 1 spot for writing New York headlines. Press. Association. Prior to that, he co-founded Thickness, a digital-only media brand for which he has interviewed fashion personalities such as Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber; Shayne Oliver, founder of Hood By Air; and Laurie Lynn Stark of Chrome Hearts. (After launch, The Thick and its parent company The Wall Group were acquired by Endeavour.)

Tony has also held positions at Departures, where he worked under the magazine’s longtime editor, Richard David Story, and Vanity Fair, where he was executive assistant to the magazine’s former editor, Graydon Carter. From the two men, he gained an understanding of the finer things – bespoke suits, fancy watches, vicuña anything – and the knowledge that he will rarely be able to afford them.

“I’m thrilled and honored to join the team of editors and writers who inform The Times readers about the ins and outs, ups and downs of fashion,” Tony said. “Especially now, when an industry known for its gatekeepers is showing real signs of democratization.”

Please join us in welcoming Tony to his new role.
