Writer, bon-vivant, window dresser extraordinaire, and fashion commentator Simon Doonan has worked in fashion for over 35 years.
He has written six books: Confessions of a Window Dresser, Wacky Chicks, a memoir entitled Beautiful People, and tongue-in-cheek style guides entitled Eccentric Glamour and Gay Men Don't Get Fat. His latest book, The Asylum: A Collage of Fashion Reminiscences…and Hysteria is a collection of stories from his 35 years in the fashion industry. He has written regularly for The New York Observer, The Daily Beast, and currently writes a biweekly humor column for SLATE.com.
Simon is a regular guest at The MOTH, the well-known storytelling series. His contributions have consistently become their most popular podcasts and NPR broadcasts.
A TV comedy series based on Beautiful People has aired in the UK, the US, and Australia. Simon has been a featured guest on late-night talk shows such as Chelsea Lately and The Conan O'Brien Show. He has regularly appeared on America's Next Top Model, VH1, Full Frontal Fashion, and Bravo.
Simon has won many awards for his groundbreaking and unconventional window displays, including the CFDA Award. In 2009 he was invited by President and Mrs. Obama to decorate the White House for the Holidays. In 2010 Simon was commissioned by Target to design the season's Halloween costumes.
Simon Doonan lives in New York City with his partner, the ceramicist and designer Jonathan Adler, and their Norwich terrier Liberace.
From the hallways of corporate America to the intimacy of the famous MOTH podcasts, Doonan shares his wickedly witty take on everything from style, fashion, and our celebrity-obsessed culture, to everyday topics seen through the lens of his trademark irreverant humor.
