Who Is Karen Fisher?



Looking through New York magazine, I saw an ad for Designer Previews. The website shows the work of America's finest interior designers and architects and helps you select the best based on your style and personal requirements through office consultations or online consultations from their private site.
Karen Fisher started Designer Previews in 1985 after having been an editor for Woman’s Wear Daily, Cosmopolitan, Esquire and American Home. Fisher not only represents the world’s top designers and architects, she is also known for selecting young designers who go on to become world famous. In the press, she's often referred to as "The Design Matchmaker" or as a "design psychologist" for her uncanny ability to help clients find their ideal match. Her place in the design world was commemorated with her induction into the Interior Design Hall of Fame in 1996. She has also written six very well-received decorating books for Viking, Morrow and Random House.
Designer Previews caters to the public looking for help in New York, Atlanta, Boston, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Phoenix and Greenwich.

Karen Fisher posts to a blog called in-Sites and it's filled with great information. Here's a sample:
The major point Fisher made is this:
As a former editor (Woman's Wear, Cosmopolitan, Esquire), I can tell you that receiving interesting work that's worth publishing would make my day. You didn't need to know a famous publicist or be social. Just show your work and give the editors a reason to publish it. Like Wood Allen says, "98% of success is showing up!" So put it out there, babes!
