Here I am at Nancy and Harry’s Fashion Reunion Party at Parlor Spring Street on August 12, 2015. As seen through the beautiful eye and lens of the amazing photographer Paul Morejón. Top Model Nancy Donahue and Hair WorldGreat Harry King throw terrific parties every year, or twice a year, for the fab fashion crowd from the ’70s and ’80s, some from the ’60s. Guests include models, hairdressers, makeup artists, fashion stylists, fashion editors, PR’s, and plenty of photographers so cameras are flashing all the time.  The photographers can’t resist the models, who all still look wonderful.  But look how lucky I am with this photo!  To see the fun and how great everyone looks, click for more HERE

Harry King did this for Nylon Magazine 2001. “Robert Erdmann, the photographer, asked me to give him something he’d never seen before,” said the WorldGreat who remembers the hair was thrown up, literally, and textured. It is something different! And if anyone knows who did the makeup and what is going on with it, let me know.  More Harry King, click here:
