8 DAYS TO GO... FASHION IN VIDEO: SUZY MENKES

Friday, February 10th, 2012

Suzy Menkes (OBE) is a name that needs very little introduction; she is the legendary fashion journalist and author who cut her teeth as fashion editor of The Evening Standard, before taking the helm at the International Herald Tribune as editor-in-chief (where she remains to this day).

A staple on the front row of fashion shows for over forty years, she originally trained as a dressmaker in Paris before taking up a place to read English and History at Cambridge; becoming the first ever female editor of Cambridge University’s newspaper Varisty. Asked if she’d ever get bored of fashion, Suzy told interviewer Alex Fury: “I will always be inspired and fascinated by fashion. Fashion is really something that’s in your blood. And while the blood stream’s there it’s always going to keep on flowing.” Watch the full interview with Suzy Menkes on SHOWStudio here.
