Suzan Abbott – Fashion Days

Suzan Abbott – Fashion Days

Suzan Abbott - back in my fashion days: In 1990, I owned a highly lucrative upscale fashion accessories company in NY City – Suzan Abbott, Inc. I discovered first hand that biz experience is the best teacher in life.

Vogue

My first break came when Vogue featured my fur-trimmed glove. The average print circulation of Vogue is 11.3 million, which meant Suzan Abbott was in the world's most influential fashion magazine.

Macy’s

Macy’s had something like a love affair with Suzan Abbott, Inc. fashions. I made a variety of elegant squares and rectangles using the French designed gold thread material.

Essence Magazine

Essence magazine aficionados visited me every season to select one of my creations for their photo shoots. My orange and purple shawl was a perfect match for their skirt and jacket. What a coincidence!

Bazaar Magazine

To be on the front cover of Bazaar was such an honor. The unique couture shawl was shown with a biz jacket. It’s a raw silk scarf with matching dyed fringe to complement its rich luster and sophistication.

Bride’s

Bride’s

This lush, versatile beige mohair cape was an easy-to-wear accessory with elegant rayon lining making it reversible.  Using soft, comfy Mohair in a modern fashion was a big hit and it sold out all over the country.

Bazaar

Scarves, capes, shawls, gloves, and purses were my specialty.  Suzan Abbott, Inc. appeared on the cover of top fashion magazines like Bazaar every season.  What a dream come true for a small town gal!

ELLE Magazine

ELLE Magazine

Elle is the world's best-selling fashion magazine. It was considered to "not so as much to reflect fashion as to decree it", with 800,000 loyal readers. There I was at the top of the fashion world! SAH-WEET!

Saks Fifth Ave

Saks Fifth Ave

Saks Fifth Avenue of NY made a big Holiday splash with this fox-fur trimmed cape. As an entrepreneur, I learned YOU must decide how hard and how smart you want to work in order to succeed.

Exterior Home

Exterior Home

My country home was a dream-come-true – a big tree house in the woods.  The cathedral ceiling living room with two skylights was my favorite place to entertain.  It was inviting and cozy all year round.

My Boys

My Boys

I always felt so great when holding my furry angels!  Both Eskies were smart, loyal, playful, lovable beyond compare and the best protectors I woman could want.  Foxy and Skippy were my heart!

My Warm Fireplace

My Warm Fireplace

The furniture’s soft beige tones accented the fireplace beautifully.  Fond memories of good times and sharing of life stories with friends will always be with me.  I loved the warm, friendly ambiance.

Suzanna’s Watsu

Suzanna’s Watsu

Being a Watsu practitioner was such a blessing! And in such a perfect location!  Holding each client in my arms while floating them slowly and gently in a dance like motion in a warm-water pool... Pure Fun!

Tall Tree Forest

Tall Tree Forest

Surrounded by tall trees, visited daily by wild creatures – deer, beaver, squirrels, chipmunks and a bevy of colorful wild birds – singing and chirping throughout the day - made for a perfect haven to write!
