My fave was the transgender with one purple eggplant on his hat.

2013 nyc FASHION WEEK / Day 4…..the Fab and the Faux

The Fashion Shows in the runway tents……survived NEMO.  No shows were cancelled…………so the fashionistas were out in full force.  Some were “far out”……..others just “out” and the others were “way out”.  But all were fun to photograph.  Love those NEW YORKERS!

Mercedes-Benz sponsors the Fashion Week tent shows at Lincoln Center.  So the next time you buy a designer dress, pick up a new Mercedes to go with it.

IN MEMORIUM for Georgie Lou Jordan

50 years ago………at age 20…….when I lived in detroit…….it was my good fortune to meet Georgie Jordan.  I lived on  25th street and she was my next-door neighbor.

We would meet over the fence in the backyard…..I would trade her one of my home-made pies……..for one of her famous roasted turkey legs.

GEORGIE 1

This dear sweet lady began her life in Georgia April 1, 1904.  She was twice married…….had three children and all passed before she did.

GEORGIE 4  (2)

Georgie lived in Atlanta before moving to Detroit.  She was a seamstress……gardener…….cook ………and loved to crochet.  For  years I sent her boxes of yarn…..and her afghans were admired by all those who got one.

GEORGIE

HATS were her passion.  For every Christmas and  birthday………I would send a hat and scarf…………..a brooch or pearls.

GEORGIE 2

If the hat didn’t have flowers or feathers…….she would send it back and tell me to gussy it up.  I loved her spunk.

GEORGIE 3

At age 100…..her friends from the Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church and I gave her a Birthday Party.  The President sent her a congratulatory wish….as did the Mayor of Detroit.  She was tickled!

GEORGIE 4

Georgie…….sweet photo taken in 1908.

IMG_5768

I admired her for her directness………she loved to give her take on politics…….she took no “cuff” from anyone…..and she hated gossip.  In the nursing home she took all her meals in her room…….had no use for all those “old people” sitting in the dining room…….gossiping!  Georgie was 106 when I took this photo……….and still possessed “all her marbles”

IMG_5774

Georgie…..passed last week at age 109.  She will always have a place in my heart.  I will miss our phone calls.
