He was one of the founding editors of InStyle Magazine , serving 15 years as Fashion Director and then Editor-At-Large for this immense resource to the fashion industry. InStyle’s popularity and embrace of hi/low fashion forever changed the way retailers regard and market to the American consumer.

He’s now a regular on that network and is a frequent guest on TV talk shows including The View, Today and The Early Show, and regularly appearing on EXTRA’s red carpet coverage of award season in Hollywood as their fashion expert. His expertise is sought by brands that the modern fashionista knows and loves for consultation and advised marketing, impacting how we shop today.
Hal Rubenstein also lends his knowledge to fashion education and lectures at The Fashion Institute of Technology, Parsons Institute, The Savannah College of Art and Design and The Governor’s Conference on Women. He will be speaking at FIT in two upcoming seminars, March 1, (Fashion & Film: the 1960’s) and May 16th (Red Carpet Style). The information is at the FIT Museum, fitnyc.edu/museum.
