IN COMMAND: Suzy Menkes, fashion editor at the International Herald Tribune, has a new recruit. Natasha Cowan started Monday as her fashion assistant, after working beside Daily Telegraph scribe Hilary Alexander for more than a decade. “She has my enthusiasm for fashion, and she also likes the digital world,” Menkes enthused at the Bouchra Jarrar couture show in Paris.
