It is possible to miss someone you never met.
I miss Liz Tilberis every month.
Her years (1992-1999) as Editor-in-Chief at Harper's Bazaar set the standards for print media, the fashion industry and my own personal style.
Today I notice, more and more, everything in fashion refers back to those years. Everything.
It is time to look back at Liz's impact on fashion and style.
I will begin with the July 1999 Harper's Bazaar issue dedicated as the Tribute Issue.
Tom Cruise's cover was the last cover approved by Liz before her death just 3 months prior.
All ad revenue went to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.
Models, photographers, stylists, make-ups artists, etc., donated their time for free.
There are no editorials.
It is the one issue which features the solidarity of the fashion industry for an icon.
Just a footnote.....
Followers of the blog are familiar with my devotion to Liz. A series on her tenure has been in works for some time. Last week was ReadySetFashion's 4 year anniversary, and it seemed fitting to celebrate the person who inspired my love for fashion and magazines.
