The Office Hours Interview: Lauren Sherman

Lauren Sherman is a writer and editorial strategist focusing on the fashion and retail industries. Currently, she's the Business of Fashion’s New York editor. You’ve likely seen her work in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal,, Yahoo Style, Racked, Marie Claire,, Women’s Health, InStyle,, and many other publications. If all of this isn’t impressive enough for you, she recently became a mom! We talk about The Thong Song's impact on fashion (no, seriously), why the fashion industry doesn't get thought of in the same way that other cultural industries do, the reality behind most fashion brands when it comes to finances, and why designers like Virgil Abloh and Kerby-Jean Raymond (of upstart fashion brand Pyer Moss) represent a shift in how the industry "sells clothes".

The Office Hours Interview is a blunt and enlightening conversation with the people who power the cultural industries. For more Office Hours Mag, sign up for the newsletter at or follow us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn @OfficeHoursMag.
