BREAKING: New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn resigns

Cathy HorynCathy Horyn has been the one great voice of reasoned fashion critique in a world full of of obsequious feigning that parades itself as fashion criticism–and today she announced her resignation as fashion critic for The New York Times.  I am going to greatly miss her astute observations  and constant question of “Is this wearable?”  As fashion moves further and further away from the wearable and real into pretentious kitsch, we need more critics like Horyn.  Hoping all the best for Horyn–she will be greatly missed.\r\n\r\nThe official announcement of her resignation states:\r\n

“Cathy’s reasons for leaving are personal ones, to spend more with her partner, Art Ortenberg, who has had health problems, and whom she feels would benefit greatly from her increased presence at home.”
