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.

After six years at Condé Nast, I will be leaving in October, after attending and reporting on the next season of shows, whether physical or virtual. I have often said that change is the essence of fashion. How true that is! After a career at the Herald Tribune and New York Times, I joined Condé Nast in 2014, leaping into the digital world. During my time at Vogue, I have enjoyed seeing the evolution and development of the fashion and creative industry – from reporting on shows and posting here on Instagram, to organising and running some of the greatest conferences and events. I have enjoyed every moment of my time as Editor, Vogue International, and I am proud of everything I have achieved at the company. I am grateful to all the industry insiders I have worked with, and of course my entire team at Condé Nast, especially Adrian Ting @a_j_ting and Natasha Cowan @tashonfash, who have worked with me for ten years. And I am grateful to those who follow my Instagram, and those who listen to my new podcast series. The current global situation has given me – and all of us – pause for reflection. And so it is time for a new adventure, which I look forward to with excitement. I will continue to write, post, record, and bring together the industry – watch this space (and SuzyMenkes.com) for the next stage of my career! And there may be a book or two with my 30 years of photos and diaries… P.S: the latest episode of my podcast is linked in bio and I look forward to sharing my reports from Couture next week.

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! “
