As one of the foremost journalists covering the retail industry today, David Moin has witnessed first-hand the changing nature of what we all wear — and how it all gets sold. For the past 30 years, he has given readers of Women’s Wear Daily front-row seats to the ebb and flow of the consumer economy; from the emergence of online and mobile shopping to the rise and fall of retail nameplates, trends, traditions and hemlines.
David sees the fashion economy continuing to evolve, with more and more retailers shifting from the sale of physical merchandise to the provision of services and food. And he believes the stories he writes will only get more interesting. “It’s a turbulent, fast-moving industry, a mix of art and science, with lots of news, many interesting people and always new players.”
