SUZY MENKES - THE ACF LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
A true global icon of the fashion industry, Suzy Menkes has helmed some of the most important editorial positions in the world. Formerly the fashion editor for the International Herald Tribune and their esteemed fashion critic for 25 years, she recently embraced the digital age with her role as the Vogue International Editor. A prominent feature of the front row at the world’s most prestigious Fashion Weeks, Suzy’s coverage of global fashion is second to none.
Suzy is also no stranger to the Asian Couture Federation (ACF), having attended Fide Fashion Weeks in Singapore as far back as 2012 where she also participated in the roundtable forum on the future of couture. The ACF was also a key partner of the International Herald Tribune Luxury Conference – ‘The SEA of Luxury’ in Singapore in 2013.
Recognising Suzy’s remarkable contribution and unparalleled experience within the fashion industry, Dr. Frank Cintamani and Ms. Emily Hwang were honoured to present Suzy Menkes with the ACF’s highest accolade, The ACF Lifetime Achievement Award (London, 2016).
