Industry Dive has hired Lara Ewen as senior editor for Fashion Dive, which will be launching in March.
Ewen has been a freelancer with Industry Dive’s Retail Dive, Supply Chain Dive and other newsletters since 2016. Based in New York, Ewen previously was editor-in-chief at Sportswear International and has also covered the industry for Women’s Wear Daily. She covered the diamond industry at Rapaport
“Fashion Dive will look before and beyond the runways to explore the shifting strategies executives, creative directors, designers and others across the industry face right now,” Ewen said in a statement. “My goal is to make the fashion industry news more accessible to our readers with actionable information they can use to make solid business decisions.”
Ewen said she wants to build a community and relationship with the audience.
“This is going to be a conversation with readers,” Ewen said. “We don’t want to just throw information at them. We want to listen and advise, not just dictate trends. We want to talk about what matters to the industry.”
