International Herald Tribune Writer Suzy Menkes Reads Blogs Doesn't Have Time For Twitter

Suzy Menkes Likes Fashion Blogs, Doesn't Have Time To Tweet

Our next Suzy Menkes series covers a topic very dear to our hearts — blogging. There we were, sitting anxiously in our seats waiting for Suzy's response when AAU's executive director of fashion, Gladys Perint Palmer, asked her if she read fashion blogs. Her response? "You should be asking me if I Twitter," said Menkes, bringing an uproar of laughter from the audience. Of course, she's joking because she doesn't have time to Twitter.

However, she does read blogs and likes their spontaneity and how it can attract an exponential amount of readers. Writing to a large audience is a big responsibility. That's why Suzy is very adamant about bloggers "keeping up the standards of journalism." I concur. Phew, glad we got the a-OK from Menkes!
