Editorial Director of Goop

Nandita (or Nan, as we know her) is a dear friend to Industry Standard and has one of the most enviable CVs in New York City as an in-house digital editorial director. When she isn’t interviewing Lauren Hutton (casual) or shooting all over the world, she can be seen rocking our Remys and one of her many Altuzarra blouses around her neighborhood of Gramercy. She took us for a walk around the park and inside her Irving Place apartment.
