Ormond Gigli, Girls in the Windows: And Other Stories (New York, 2013), cover and p. 23

"We were the first to promote Ormond ’s remarkable fashion image over 30 years ago. It has beauty and whimsy and humor and the sheer audacity of actually pulling this image off in a complex urban environment riddled with building permissions and releases  always amazed me and brings a smile to my face.. Of course it would be impossible to duplicate it today but through Ormond’s amazing determination and shall . we say “Chutzpah” he did it .

He passed away last year and I still miss our almost daily conversations. I cannot think of another image in the gallery’s history that had such universal appeal." - Peter Fetterman
