Alas, the day has come to part with dear Suzy Menkes. Sniff. I leave you with these last notes . . .
When AAU's executive director of fashion Gladys Perint Palmer said she's witnessed Suzy cover her ears when the music is too loud at a fashion show, Suzy said: "Music is the food of fashion. Music tells the designer’s spirit in a collection."
So what gets her blood boiling? "Imagination, originality, and execution. And it's a real joy seeing people from the very beginning," she said, referring to the likes of Alexander McQueen and Zac Posen, whom she's followed from the start of their careers. Aw, that's sweet!
