    I have a collection of these which I obtained from a woman who was a stylist there. Most libraries that had copies tossed them years ago. Really innovative fashion mag and a true snapshot of the time. Editor Carol Troy went on to publish CHEAP CHIC (with Caterine Milinaire)–it’s chock full of creatively-dressed eccentrics, many of whom became quite famous.
