About Derek Warburton: Derek developed his keen fashion sense and honed his talent for styling at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. (When I first met him, he was sitting front row during New York Fashion Week). Before transitioning into magazines as a fashion editor for various luxury lifestyle publications, his charisma led him to television where he coDhosted “Britain’s Fashion Avenue” and the Style Network’s “Big Boutiques.” He has been featured in The New York Time, InTouch, Fashion News Live, and on The Insider. Derek also appeared on season three of the Bravo reality television series The Real Housewives of New York City. “Besides being an amazing stylist, Derek is one of the most hardworking and charitable individuals I have had the pleasure of working with, “says Lowe. “Spiegel has been providing American women with a better lifestyle for over 100 years, seamlessly blending aspiration with affordability. Derek will help us perpetuate this fine tradition.”
