We were so excited when one of our coworkers came in yesterday morning with the New York Times Fashion & Style section in hand. "This is my friend!" he said, pointing to a picture of a stylish young woman holding a heavy-looking black garment bag. Well, not just a friend, but a Freelancers Union member!
The Times calls Nayantara Banerjee "a modern-day traveling tailor." Though she has sometimes been contracted for big Hollywood projects, the profile points out that her freelance clients are mostly freelancers or independent workers themselves.
(Head's up: it looks like the Times is now requiring log-in to see the article online.)
