What Would Joan Rivers Say #MBFW


Fashion Week lost its fizz when Joan Rivers sadly passed on Thursday. I wondered what Joan would say about fashion week this year. Her funeral is today and I sorely miss her fearless wit and fashion sense.  We’ve lost a trailblazer and icon. She of course made a career of lambasting fashion as the host of Fashion Police. I could imagine her making up a quote like ours about bicycles today. Fashion can be frivolous individually but powerful in the big picture as an economic force. The multi-billion dollar industry provides employment in many far-reaching levels. But today work is on hold for many as we mourn a legend.  No doubt some of the biggest fashion and entertainment icons will be show up at what is reported to be a red carpet event at Joan’s private funeral at the Temple Emanu-El.  I can hear her jokes about everyone’s outfits already. It was her greatest wish to make people laugh and we will again soon.

  1. Love this. Joan was my favorite.

    She was the second to break through the ranks of female comedian, after Phyllis Diller — and the first to be able to do so looking and acting like a woman — unlike Diller, who had to go to great lengths to make it — with her purple hair and that ”cackle.”

    1. Mine too. Truly an original. She paved the way for many women and not just in comedy.

  2. Yes, it’s a sad day, she will be missed.

    on another note, I’m glad these are coming thru to me now. all emails i
    sent yesterday were returned to me.

    1. I fixed the newsletter. Thanks for following up. Did you check your bulk file. Can you pls. cut and paste an example on Fb so I can troubleshoot?
