Jean E. Palmieri

Jean Palmieri is the senior editor of men’s for WWD and managing editor of M Collections.

She serves as the primary editorial liaison between the men’s wear industry and the publication, and reports and writes breaking news stories as well as thoughtful analytical pieces on the state of the fashion industry. Before joining WWD, Palmieri served as executive editor of DNR, managing a staff of more than 20. She started her journalism career as an assistant editor for Direct Magazine and also served as New York bureau chief of California Apparel News. A New York City native, Palmieri has a BA in journalism and mass communications from New York University and lives with her husband and American Eskimo dog in the suburbs of the city where she enjoys participating in triathlons.
