"I met Louise Nevelson through her dealer Arne Glimcher...She was well known for wearing these bits and pieces, odd belts, shoes, and strange headgear, also for the way she mixed up items of clothing...Her extraordinary face was like a sculpture of its own. She wore three pairs of false eyelashes, all fluttering at once. So, there was her wonderful face with these black-fringed eyes, always moving and full of curiosity...We designed clothes that were unusual and had a great punch—she adored getting dressed up. Nothing was ever too far out. She loved sumptuous, flamboyant designs. Of course, the look mirrored the grand scale of her art. The clothes I designed for her were life imitating art—her art. I couldn't have been more thrilled."
