60s Modeling

Being plunged into such a sophisticated society as the international fashion world was a bit overwhelming for teenagers from the USA. Each of us dealt with it as best we could. I went a different route than many because I got involved with the aristocrats and the literary set, by accident really, not by design.

I did like Arthur Elgort, but it was not to be. It’s a funny story and I will tell it later.
