10 Things You Don’t Know About…Town & Country’s Will Kahn

by Sydney Sadick

You can count on Town & Country’s fashion market and accessories director Will Kahn to bring luxe and glamour to the pages of the glossy since he joined the book in 2013. But how well do you know the editor, who previously held titles at W, Teen Vogue, and New York Magazine? Kahn gets talking.

  1. I was born in Texas and consider Tex-Mex my comfort food: Queso dip and margaritas go a long way.
  2. I worked at a movie theater in high school: The perks were free movies for your entire family, free popcorn, and $1 dollar hot dogs. It was heaven.
  3.  My boyfriend Josh started the luggage company Raden: It charges your phone and connects to an app that lets you know if it’s overweight. Oprah called it the smartest luggage ever.
