Suzy Menkes is a world-renowned, British, fashion journalist, at the moment she works for Vogue (international). Last week she came to visit Belgium and The Netherlands. Her tour started in Brussels for the fashion exhibition “The Belgians” at Bozar, followed by a visit to Antwerp’s Momu with Dries Van Noten, and a meeting with Walter van Beirendonck. In The Netherlands she opened the fashion exhibition “New for Now” at the Rijksmuseum and she visited Denim City, both in Amsterdam. Ms Menkes also visited the exhibition “Everything but Clothes” at the Arnhem Museum.
Yes, we can read your mind; this is also a tour for us fashion lovers. We can visit 4 new exhibitions on fashion, just like Suzy M.
Suzy Menkes will be writing a fashion column for the Dutch (cheap, glossy) magazine Beau Monde. Her first story will be published in the October issue 2015 of the magazine. Hard to believe that’s true: this magazine is not about fashion but about (Dutch) celebrities…..Wir sind gespannt.
