CEW(UK) announced its 2014 Lifetime Achiever—Suzy Menkes, international editor of Vogue.
Imaginative, original and independent, Menkes has built a reputation for honest reporting and telling fashion like it is. Educated at Cambridge University in English literature and history, Menkes was spotted by Charles Wintour (father of Anna Wintour), who appointed her fashion editor of the London Evening Standard at age 24. Over three decades, her reviews and insights have appeared in the world’s leading press, from The Times of London to the International Herald Tribune. The author of several books, including The Royal Jewels and The Windsor Style, Menkes now brings her unique take on fashion to Condé Nast International online as international Vogue editor.
One of the best-known and best-loved fixtures of international fashion weeks, Menkes has been decorated with the Legion d’Honneur in France and awarded a British OBE. She divides her time between London and Paris and has an extended family via her three sons.
The 2014 CEW Achiever Awards, which promises to be an exciting and glamorous evening for CEW(UK) and its honorees, takes place on Thursday, November 20, 2014, at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel in Knightsbridge, London. Additional information available here.
