Nina Garcia Bio

Nina Garcia


As ELLE magazine’s Editor-In-Chief, Nina Garcia is the first Latin woman to head up a major fashion title in the US. Her take on style is known to millions in her capacity as a “Project Runway” judge and an author of four books on fashion.

Under Nina’s Editorial supervision, ELLE has continued its mission to elevate women’s voices and causes. In March, Nina published the exclusive story of musician FKA Twigs and the abuse she endured at the hands of actor Shia LaBeouf. To help others like FKA Twigs, Nina and her team created an online portal with resources for those suffering Intimate Partner Violence.

Nina has led charitable efforts with both the Step-Up Women’s Network and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Her numerous acknowledgements include the Hispanic Federation’s Individual Achievement Award, Oliver Scholars’ Program Champion of Educational Excellence Award and the Alzheimer’s Association’s Champion Award.
