Here’s Kurnit’s description of her career and work:
I graduated college with a B.A. in cultural anthropology and my intent was to stay an additional semester and study art, but life threw me a curve. I was offered a fabulous job first as a magazine editor at Mademoiselle and then as Fashion Director of Seventeen Magazine for a total of 10 years.
