Matthew Schneier joined The New York Times just in time for fashion week in February 2014. Announcing the hire, Stuart Emmrich, editor of New York Times Styles, described Schneier as “an excellent reporter and an insightful critic.” Over the subsequent years, he carved out a strong voice in The New York Times’ style section, garnering respect for his insightful criticism and reporting on the fashion industry. Most recently, he had begun to post video recaps of the shows from New York and Paris Fashion Week and was an integral part in the team of reporters that highlighted sexual harassment allegations against photographers
Prior to joining the style section at The New York Times, Schneier worked at Style.com for nearly six years, rising to become the website's deputy editor, where he wrote reviews and features and oversaw daily news content on the website’s blog, Style File, as well as its social media output. Before that, Schneier had had stints at a number of publications including GQ and The New Yorker.
A graduate of Yale University, where he majored in English Literature, in the past Schneier has written for titles including Harper’s Bazaar, Slate and Details, as well as working as a freelance stylist.
