Suzy Menkes Awarded Fiorino d’Oro of the City of Florence
International Herald Tribune’s Fashion Editor Suzy Menkes has been announced as this year’s recipient of the Fiorino d’Oro of the City of Florence. The honour is usually conferred by the Municipality of Florence, Italy, to “distinguished individuals who, thanks to their excellent work in the field of culture, arts, politics, philanthropy, sports or international activities in all their forms, have brought honour and have served to national and international community and contributed to its cultural growth therefore becoming worthy of being held up to public praise”. Menkes will receive the accolade during Pitti Immagine Uomo 83 on 9 January 2013 in Florence’s Palazzo Vecchio.
