Suzy Menkes in Singapore + S.E.A of Luxury Conference

I believe I’ve had my fair share of star struck moments and this is probably amongst top 5. I mean… Suzy Menkes, the ultimate fashion journalism icon. I religiously read her provoking articles, how can you ignore the whole debate on “The Circus of Fashion”?

Suzy is in Singapore right now for the S.E.A of Luxury Conference, an annual premier conference by International New York Times (formerly International Herald Tribune) which is happening in South East Asia for the first time. At the press conference, Suzy Menkes started off with saying how she has “a soft spot for Singapore” and ended her short introduction with a question on why “asian men are so well dressed” while looking at some journos in the audience. She pointed out that she’s particularly interested in menswear in Asia and the power of male consumer in general. Also not forgetting the accessories and jewelry market which continues to grow exponentially.

The S.E.A of Luxury Conference is happening at Capella Singapore from 21-24 November and some of the speakers on board include Anna Sui, Bryanboy, Anya Hindmarch, Vogue China’s Angelica Cheung, Phillip Lim and many more.
