Speaking onstage about Fame at the world famous LA Book Fair, then a talk with M.
Ord at the Ebell Theatre about Elizabeth Taylor, the Accidental Feminist, and lastly a book party at Elizabeth Mason’s Paper Bag Princess shop in Beverly Hills where she showed Shirlee Fonda’s ’76 piece Vicky Tiel vintage collection and we had a red carpet photo op with Peter Fonda, the hero of our favorite ’60s film Easy Rider.
Another plane, another hotel and then the launching our first HSN dress collection in Tampa at the HSN campus (we sold out, books too) and another plane the next day where we flew to New York for the Parsons Fashion show.
You have to be really healthy today to launch a book, a dress collection or an art exhibit.
The Parsons School of Design show was at Pier 69, in New York City, a far cry from our 1964 fashion show held in our tiny school over a garage on E 54th Street.
The most prominent fashion weeks are held in the four fashion capitals of the world: New York City, London, Milan, and Paris.
We went to the 2012 show (our first), with fellow 1964 classmate, Mary Alice Orito.
We entered under a gigantic banner that exclaimed, “You Never Leave Parsons.”.
After years on 7th Ave, and theater costume design, and TV design (Search for Tomorrow) Mary Alice became a very successful psychotherapist for unhappy artists.
(Mary Alice, herself a talented mixed media artist, recently showed her first solo art show called “Whimsy & Torn Paper” at N.
Gallery in New York City.) She was the perfect person to help us analyze and review the current Parsons Fashion show.
Parsons The New School For Design is a private art and design college of The New School university in New York City.
“It’s different today because sex is more of a ‘mental’ game with young people. The mental games are ‘dress up games’ with selections of things from other periods of time, or direct copying of an era or the obvious indicator such as wealth. All it means is, ‘We’re on the same page.”.
Sexy clothes, with cleavage and legs are for something specific like clubs, bars, or parties and usually late at night.
?” she says to us as we studied the program of the award winners.And then, the show began and it was a complicated affair of multiple dissecting runways, video screens and streaming pop music, including our favorite, “Tonight We Are Young,” and we were not young. we were in shock by the clothes. The show was defiantly influenced by the collection of Alexander McQueen at the Met last year. The Show was The Thing… not fashion, nor dressmaking, nor couture craft work, nor art but all show — and a very international show it was! This was theatrical design at its’ best (not retail); it was Sci Fi, video and Japanese Hakama tucked clothing layered up like modern city martial arts geishas. The pencil thin models wore the new puffball hairdo of Karmin in the top 10 music video, “Brokenhearts,” a hair do once a wierd do, worn only by fashion reporter Suzy Menkes, had now gone mainstream.”.
