Where Have You Beene?


I was reminded of the late Geoffrey Beene in a post yesterday in lovely Madeleine's Blog, In New York Paris Tomorrow.  Glovemaker extraordinaire, Daniel Storto shared a piece that captures so vividly, a period in his life in Los Angeles and what it was like to live and work there during that time.  He mentions Mr. Beene.  He describes their first meeting and tells of how creatively connected they were and how free and trusting their working relationship was.  Beene was one of my earliest fashion inspirations, but sadly, I never had the opportunity to meet him.  The best I could do was write a tiny little article for the Lookonline's Daily Fashion Report in October 2008, after the book launch of "Geoffrey Beene An American Fashion Rebel," written by PAPER Mag's, Kim Hastreiter.  The book is fantastic AND the cover photo is shot by talented veteran fashion photographer, Randy Brooke, who just happens to be the house photographer for my show this season!

  1. Oh thank you for the mention ... Beene was American design, he and Blass and the late Ann Klein (ok, many more but these were the big guys).

    Daniel's story was so evocative and generous.

  2. Kudos to you to have Randy Brooke photographing your show! Way to go!!!

    I met Geoffrey Beene once in his showroom when I was a young, inexperienced fashion editor and he was charming, candid and gracious. It's a moment in time I'll never forget.
