Digital Style Editor
Schooled author, screenwriter, and fashion journalist, Anisha readily admits her first love will always be for the written word. Her writings have appeared in Vogue, Teen Vogue, Conde Nast Traveller, Quest and Q magazines, The Huffington Post, and beyond, and for her the cyber realm was a natural segue as she deems it another language. Anisha lives on the Upper East Side with her beloved shitzus Harold Moscowitz and Luigi Maestro and can just as easily get lost in a blog as she can a big, juicy novel. A Columbia University graduate and former English Chair of The Dalton Middle School, Anisha is convinced that the heart of conquering digital stems from a true love of learning as the space virtually breathes invention.
