Renowned fashion journalist, Suzy Menkes has left the International New York Times after a 25 year tenure to join Condé Nast International. Widely considered one of few remaining fashion critics left in the industry, Suzy has been tapped up by the glossy publishing house to become their international Vogue editor; a job which will see the legendry writer significantly expand her online reach by writing for all Vogue websites in Condé Nast’s international (non-US) markets, including Britain, France, Italy, China, Russia, Japan, Germany and Spain.
“It’ll be great to have Suzy as part of the team,” British Vogue editor-in-chief and Industry member, Alexandra Shulman said this morning. “Her experience is invaluable and I have always admired her.”
Similarly to her position at the International New York Times, Suzy’s new role too encompasses the organising of an annual luxury goods industry conference, supported by Condé Nast. Details of this event will be announced in the coming future.
“I am thrilled to become international Vogue editor at Condé Nast International, which has a real commitment to journalistic excellence, and to have the opportunity to write for a wider global audience through the Vogue websites,” Suzy told Vogue. “I am grateful to have spent 25 years at the International Herald Tribune – a newspaper where I had unstinting support in being able to express myself freely and honestly. I feel this is the perfect time to embrace a new challenge in the digital age.”
