The following excerpt was sent out from The New York Times’ Styles editor Stella Bugbee:
We are delighted to announce that Anthony (Tony) Rotunno, a staff editor on the New York Times Wedding desk, has joined our Styles desk as fashion news editor. He will focus on expanding the desk’s service journalism as well as its coverage of design, trends and the ways fashion and style travel from the runway to our everyday lives on the street and at home.
Prior to joining The Times, Tony served as a senior editor of New York magazine’s Strategist section and website, and as the editor in chief of the Brooklyn Paper, where his work earned him a first-place award for headline writing from the New York Press Association. Before that, he co-founded The Thick, a digital-only media brand for which he interviewed such fashion world fixtures as Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber; Hood By Air founder Shayne Oliver; and Chrome Hearts’s Laurie Lynn Stark.
Tony has also held positions at Departures, where he worked under the magazine’s longtime editor Richard David Story, and Vanity Fair, where he served as an executive assistant to the magazine’s former editor Graydon Carter.
Please join us in welcoming Tony to his new role.
