We all fantasize and dream about what the Vogue closet must look like. From the looks of it, however, Vogue may not hold a candle to Suzanne Rogers. Not to be confused with the former Rockette and Days of our Lives Star of the same name, the Toronto fashionista is CLEARLY a style icon.
Let’s take a quick inventory: there are hundreds of shoes, bags, and clutches; from top shelf designers like Chanel, Prada, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Nicholas Kirkwood, YSL, Brian Atwood, and Roger Vivier (just to name a few). Rogers also has a collection of leather jackets from Balmain and Christopher Kane, not to mention dozens of Alexander McQueen Couture pieces.
BUT WAIT…there is more. Rogers admits that she only keeps one or two SEASONS in her closet…the other pieces are colour coordinated, photographed, boxed, and stored. Who doesn’t dream of being able to say, “I think I’ll go down to the basement and have a look through my HAUTE COUTURE.” Having a special relationship with many designers, Rogers has many rare and specially made pieces. Thankfully, it’s not all about Suzanne in Suzanne Roger’s closet. She uses her tight thread with designers to raise money for children’s charities around the globe; raising over one million dollars in the last two years while also raising her own three children.
Even without the clothes, the interior design and decorating of that closet are amazing…I want to LIVE in it. Inspired by traditional French architecture, it must feel like living at the Ritz in Paris. Putting on the Ritz AND living at the Ritz? What more could you ask for…?
