Another Reason to Adore Susie Sheffman

leave a comment »


Everyone already knows that I think that Susie Sheffman is a national treasure.  Her body of work at “FASHION” over the years has never failed to amaze me.  Still, she’s like the gift that keeps on giving.

I was watching a segment on “InFashion” this past Sunday where the show tagged along on Sheffman’s working vacation to the Bahamas (nice work if you can get it, huh?).  Anyway, one of the photographs that resulted from the shoot has become my favorite fashion image in recent memory.  I haven’t fawned over a photo like this since Raquel Zimmermann posed with a dozen snakes for Alexander McQueen.  I’d hang it on my wall if I could.

When last September’s S/S Prada show showed aquamarine and shell pink clothes, I doubted that I was ready for the trend to come back because the colors reminded me of porcelain bathroom fixtures from the 1950s.  With one perfectly-styled image, Susie Sheffman has convinced me that aquamarine is my new favorite color.

That’s all it took, and that’s all it should take.  When you’re good at your job, your work shouldn’t just speak for itself: it should make people want more.  I always want more from Susie Sheffman and that’s the greatest compliment I could probably give anyone in the fashion business.
