Meet Channing

Keep reading to learn more about me, the blog, and why I moved to New York. But first, hi, I’m Channing!

How to tame flyaways

Currently, I am the Fashion News Writer at Refinery29 where I report on industry events and hunt down exclusives as well as hidden stories and breaking headlines.


Channing in the City is my guide to the New York City, where I type monthly love letters, go inside stylish residents’ closets, and occasionally make videos. But mostly, I share tidbits of my daily life living in a tiny studio in a big city. Like, that one time there was a mouse in my apartment — eep!


Subscribe to my weekly newsletter (click here!) to get the week’s best sample sales, store openings, and events. Even if you don’t live here, this website will make you feel like a New Yorker.


This is how I do NYC.

Published Pieces

I’m a fashion writer with a knack for market and shopping stories. I’ve gone inside the Rockettes’ costume closet, chatted with legendary stylist Patricia Field about closing her iconic store on Bowery, interviewed French leather goods brand Moynat’s CEO inside its new Upper East Side store, plus supermodels like Naomi Campbell and Lisa Kebede. Oh, and there was the time I interviewed Carine Roitfeld during New York Fashion Week with a glass of champagne in my hand.
