Hi, I'm Raquel...

I am a writer, reporter and editor based in New York City. I write about fashion, arts, books, culture, history and (sometimes) celebrity. My work has been published in The New York Post, The New York Times, The Daily Beast, Open Magazine, The New Inquiry, Refinery29, Forbes, Newsweek International and ELLE.com, among other publications. I also have taught fashion journalism at Parsons and led critical-writing workshops for the Arts Journalism program at the Newhouse School at Syracuse University. I started my career as a copyeditor and then opinions and special projects editor at Forbes.com, where I helped report and put together rankings of the most powerful people and best prep schools, as well as packages on immigration, pollution and urbanism. Now I'm a features reporter for the New York Post.
