ON A ROLL: Suzy Menkes will ring in her 25 years as style editor of the International New York Times — formerly the International Herald Tribune — by receiving a Special Recognition Award at the British Fashion Awards in London next week, the British Fashion Council said Thursday.

 

Menkes, who joined the IHT as style editor in 1988, has also worked for The Times in London, the London Evening Standard and The Independent newspapers. Menkes is a graduate of Cambridge University, where she was the first female editor of the university’s newspaper.

 

Ahead of receiving the honor at the awards, which will take place at the London Coliseum on Dec. 2, figures in the British fashion industry lined up to congratulate Menkes.

 

“The brain under that front-roll [hairstyle] is a phenomenon,” Sarah Mower, the British Fashion Council’s ambassador for emerging talent and contributing editor to Vogue USA, said in the BFC's statement.

 

“I’m in awe of the agenda-setting pieces she pens between Milan and Paris which both interrogate fashion’s motives and put it in its rightful cultural and economic place,” Mower added.

 

Milliner Stephen Jones said: “Suzy is fashion. Suzy is the benchmark by which all others are judged. Few come close in authority, experience, judgment and hairdo.”
