Times Fashion Critic Cathy Horyn to Retire - New York Times

Cathy Horyn, The New York Times’s chief fashion critic, is retiring, the paper said Friday. Ms. Horyn has been with The Times since 1998 and has been in her current position since 1999.

Ms. Horyn is leaving to spend more time with her partner, Art Ortenberg, who is sick, according to a note to the newsroom from The Times’s executive editor, Jill Abramson, and Stuart Emmrich, editor of the Styles sections.

Ms. Horyn, 57, has been recognized for her unique voice and deep knowledge of the fashion industry. Previously, she worked for Vanity Fair, The Washington Post and The Detroit News.

In their memo to the newsroom, Ms. Abramson and Mr. Emmrich called Ms. Horyn, “the pre-eminent fashion critic of her generation and who has set an almost impossible standard for those who may follow.”

Ms. Horyn would not leave the paper entirely, the memo said. She will continue to work on a book project for the Rizzoli publishing company that chronicles how The New York Times has covered fashion from the 1850s to the present.

Her partner, Mr. Ortenberg, is a former textile executive who was married to Liz Claiborne, the clothing designer who died in 2007.

Together, Mr. Ortenberg and Ms. Claiborne started the apparel business Liz Claiborne.
