Simon Doonan

Writer, bon-vivant, fashion commentator, window-dresser and Creative Director for Barney’s New York, Simon Doonan is known for his provocative "Simon Says" column in the New York Observer.

His life philosophy is a simple one: “Life is like a gogo box. You jump on it wearing top ‘n’ bottom false eye-lashes and jiggle around until you eventually fall off.” He has written four books: “Confessions of a Window Dresser,” “Wacky Chicks,” a memoir entitled “Nasty” (newly released as “Beautiful People”) and a tongue-in-cheek style guide entitled “Eccentric Glamour.” A comedy series entitled “Beautiful People,” produced by Jon Plowman and based on “Nasty,” airs on the BBC2 network. Doonan lives in New York City with his partner, the ceramicist and designer Jonathan Adler and their Norwich terrier Liberace.
