Suzy Menkes Steps Down From 'Vogue' International

“It is time for a new adventure.”

Suzy Menkes is departing from her role as editor of Vogue International. The British fashion journalist, who in 2001 was banned from LVMH runway shows for her unwaveringly honest writing, told Business of Fashion that “it is time for a new adventure” and cited the current cultural climate as a time for reflection. Menkes added that she will continue to “write, post, record and bring together the industry.”

A consequence of Menkes’ departure, Condé Nast International is canceling its annual Condé Nast Luxury Conference, an event that Menkes has helmed for the past five years. The publishing giant, which saw Vogue.com Editor Stuart Emmrich step down just days ago, is dealing with a slew of allegations detailing workplace racism and discrimination. In June, Bon Appétit Editor Adam Rapoport resigned after a photo of him dressed in brownface resurfaced on Twitter. Two days later, Vogue‘s Anna Wintour apologized for “publishing images or stories that have been hurtful or intolerant.”

Menkes will officially leave Vogue International in October. Before then, she will review the upcoming September Spring/Summer 2021 collections.
