My first working experience was in the New York Fashion Industry, 7th Ave as it was called. I don’t think we thought of it as an industry.
I got to meet people like Richard Blauner, (who gave me two ties from A. Sulka) Jerry Silverman, Herbert Sondheim and others. I was one of the first to see the original dresses and coats as they came back from the Paris Fashion Shows. In other words – I was in shipping. But none the less, I still admired the beauty of what I was seeing.
