(NEW YORK) After fourteen years at Glamour, Suze Yalof Schwartz is leaving her position as executive fashion editor at large for a complete lifestyle change in California. Schwartz has served as a ubiquitous ambassador for the magazine since 1996; her last day at Condé Nast is August 20. “The truth is, this was no-brainer for me,” Schwartz told The Daily. “My husband Marc has just been named the chief investment officer by the Broad Foundations, and this was a wonderful opportunity for him and our family. But of course, because I’ve been at the magazine for 14 years, it’s still hard to make such a big shift. I essentially had a dream job, doing countless talk shows and TV appearances. I’m probably going to miss New York's Fashion Week the most. It will be weird to be on the other side of the country in September!”
Another Schwartz trademark the editor hates to bid farewell? “The makeovers!” she confessed. “I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of making someone over---and totally making their day in the process. During the course of my career, I had a chance to make over everyone from a rabbi to participants at a dog show to 35 random shoppers at the Mall of America. Recently, we gave out 300 bras in Central Park to those who were willing to switch on the spot.”
So what to expect from Schwartz's new Pacific Palisades existence? “I still run my blog Dwellers without Decorators,” she added. “I’ve always had passion for décor, and now I have time to really embrace it.” That and some other things. Schwartz is a mother of three boys (ages 3, 6, and 9)---and there are a few undeniable advantages to a West Coast lifestyle. “It will be great to live in a cool place, play a lot of tennis, and drive a convertible,” laughed Schwartz. “But hopefully, I’ll find some spokesperson opportunities, and in the future, maybe have my own show as well. Those are my Los Angeles goals!”
