Work & Mentions
Here’s what’s new from beauty & fashion editor and freelance writer Lora Grady.
I attended Ryerson Journalism School and at 21, became co-editor-in-chief of a campus feminist magazine. When I graduated a year later, I landed an internship at Chatelaine, one of Canada’s leading women’s lifestyle magazines, and soon became a full-time editor. Eventually, I became a fashion and beauty editor in custom publishing, which is how I spend my weekdays from 9 to 5.
Outside of my job, I have a part-time freelance career where I’m able to write about overcoming physical challenges, plus-size fashion, body-positive activists and my favourite cosmetics. My work has been published in Walmart Live Better, The Kit, Chatelaine, Canadian Health & Lifestyle, This magazine, Style at Home, The Ryerson Review of Journalism and on Flare.com.
When I’m not working, you can find me relaxing somewhere downtown with pals, a chai latte in hand (or a cheeseburger, depending on the time of day), rocking a new bold lipstick and a big ol’ grin.
