{Timeless Style} Susan Grant

It was 1971, FOF Susan Grant’s first year in New York City. She moved to The Big Apple after landing her first job on Wall Street. “I was bringing home $83 a week,” she remembers. Her first big splurge? The fur coat pictured below (left) from Alixandre Furs. Today, the coat is long gone (she sold it) and she favors a fur vest designed by Ann Demeulemeester (pictured, right).

“I bought my very first fur for myself when I moved to NYC. It was muskrat with a raccoon collar. It was one of my first big-girl, big-city purchases.” -Susan Grant
