After six years at the editorial staff of Vogue International, Suzy Menkes announced her departure in October on her Instagram profile. One of the most authoritative fashion journalists, for years Menkes has captured and rendered the fashion shows from the front row with an unmistakable spirit and style.
Condé Nast, the publishing group that owns other famous fashion magazines, has canceled her “CNI Luxury Conference”. It was originally set on 9 and 10 December 2020 in Vienna. The cancellation of the conference also responds to the need to clarify how these events will take place following the pandemic from COVID-19. The editor will leave Vogue International after the next autumn shows.
Suzy Menkes has an exemplary career behind her, littered with cutting-edge articles and reviews that are captivating and never bound by editorial constraints. Her personal style, unique in its kind, has made her even more iconic if possible. She took her first steps at the International Herald Tribune and then at the New York Times. Finally, she landed at the Condé Nast in 2014. Among the many awards, stands, of course, her appointment as Chevalier of the French National Order of the Legion of Honour, for her services in fashion journalism. She even received the keys to the city of Florence from Mayor Dario Nardella in 2015 during her Luxury Conference at Palazzo Vecchio.
However, Suzy sees yet another professional turn. She certainly will not stop here. On the contrary, she already has one or two books in mind that will contain photos, reports and articles spread over more than 30 years.
“The current situation has allowed me, and has allowed all of us, to take time to reflect. Now is the time to embark on a new adventure, which I can’t wait to start. I will continue to write, publish, register and review our sector. Keep an eye on this space and SuzyMenkes.com for the next step in my career! “
