About me & my work:

In 1984 Kim Hastreiter founded PAPER magazine in collaboration with good friend and former Soho News co-worker David Hershkovits. PAPER is an independent pop-culture magazine based in New York that features written content from local artists and friends and covers underground music, technology and fashion. For nearly 30 years PAPER has been at the forefront in covering the true originators in the world of style, and has become renowned as an incubator for burgeoning young artists, designers and pop-starlets.

PAPER boasts a paid circulation of 125,000 and issues eight editions a year, while the website counts 1.3 million unique visitors per month. Paper Publishing Inc. has also branched out into event planning and public relations through Extra Extra, and by providing consulting and business-to-business services to other brands. The company also hosts several Nightlife Award events in New York and Los Angeles.

Kim was awarded the ‘Eugenia Sheppard Award’ for Journalism by the CFDA in 2010, and has also published several books including ‘Geoffrey Beene, An American Fashion Rebel’ and ’20 Years of Style – The World According to PAPER’ in collaboration with David Hershkovits.
