In Memory of Fashion Journalist Barbara Cloud
I was sad to learn that longtime Pittsburgh fashion editor Barbara Cloud has died. Here is her obituary:
"Her crisp, vibrant writing matched her fashion sense, said John Robinson Block, publisher and editor-in-chief of the Post-Gazette.
"She was one of the most gifted newspaper writers that I think I've known over many years. She was of the older school of journalism, characterized by the clarity of how they wrote," he said."
I had conducted several email interviews with Barbara and her opinions on designers, department stores and fashion journalism. I am completing an article about Barbara for a history journal.
I was so sad to learn of her death.
