Transplanted from Dublin to New York almost a decade ago, Fiona Byrne has evolved from a mainstream print journalist from Us Weekly, The New York Times and New York Magazine into a modern day multi-media trend-spotter and tastemaker for all things downtown.

Currently, she’s editor-in-chief of the online fashion, lifestyle and culture destination, The Byrne Notice. We had a lot of fun chatting with Fiona about wearing scrubs, the constitution of a trend, the future of the glossy printed page and the best places to paint Manhattan’s skyline. Just when we thought it was a wrap, she shared some choice words for the boardroom suits running the “everyday deals” at Whole Foods. Consider yourself on notice, lads.
