Suzy Menkes vs. Susie Bubble
After all that kerfuffle last season between Cathy Horyn and, well, just about everyone, we thought we could rely on this season being quiet on the critique front. Then Suzy Menkes penned a piece for T called, “The Circus of Fashion,” and it sent ripples through the blogosphere. Fashion personalities like Susie Lau and Leandra Medine, specifically named by Menkes, took to their blogs in defense of the genre. We tapped our founding editor Faran Krentcil (who had already told us why she’ll always dress up for fashion week, haters be damned) to weigh in on the debate.
