Sara Forden is an editor with Bloomberg News in Washington, where she leads a team of eight reporters, based between Washington and New York, covering financial enforcement including antitrust, white collar crime and other misconduct investigated by agencies such as the U.S. Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission.
She has been with Bloomberg for more than 14 years, eight of them reporting on consumer goods companies from Milan, Italy, where she lived for 22 years after completing her MA in Economics and International Affairs from the Johns Hopkins University School for Advanced International Studies (SAIS).
In Italy, Forden also covered Fiat’s bid to turn around Chrysler under the management of Sergio Marchionne. Previously, she reported on the fashion and luxury goods industry for more than 12 years for media companies including Bloomberg, The International Herald Tribune and Women’s Wear Daily, where she served as bureau chief and business correspondent from 1992-1998. She also worked for Class Editori for two years, where she launched an Italian women’s magazine LUNA, wrote weekly columns for Milano Finanza Fashion (MFF) on the state of the luxury goods industry, and was a regular commentator on Class TV.
Forden published “The House of Gucci,” with Harper Collins in 2000, weaving together the family saga with the story of the rise, fall and rise again of one of fashion’s most powerful brands.
