Why the standing ovation? Because, in a world of high glamour, The gothic, The preppy, The seduction, the “untouchable” fashion, The playing it safe for the majority of consumerism. Not, 25 minutes after posting ” I miss the kinderwhores of the 90’s” on my facebook wall. I stumble across Meadham Kirchhoff’s Autumn 2012 line. And, let me just say. It’s cheeky, Flashy, Fun, irresistible and contagious. Sure, you may not like the complete ensemble- But, It always comes down to separates in a fashion line anyhow. If you are into Japanese Harajuku, 90’s Betsey Johnson, 90’s club kids, 90’s candy kids- feast your eyes. If I hadn’t thrown away, by accident, a box of photos from my teenage years in the 90’s, you would know that my way of dress was just as out there as this as I would be able to show you- this was Jovan in the 90’s. I always said I brought Harajuku to Lewis and Clark High School. Brings me back. Oh the memories.
According to the New York Post, witnesses saw Kaplan “slumped forward” once the show had already begun. Security rushed to her aid, carrying her out of the show where EMTs gave her CPR and put her in a hospital-bound ambulance.
Prior to her collapse, the bespectacled fashion maven was photographed smiling in her front row seat (see photos below). Kaplan is one of the stars of Ari Cohen’s Advanced Style blog, which features fabulous fashionistas in their 70s, 80s and 90s.
Known for African-inspired hats and prints as well as her round sunglasses, Kaplan is a world traveler who has journeyed to countries such as Ghana, Ethiopia and Nigeria for both fashion inspiration and women’s activism. According to the New York Times, she discussed issues such as a woman’s right of inheritance and female genital mutilation with the African villagers she visited.
Kaplan was wearing one of her African-inspired outfits on Wednesday at Joanna Mastroianni’s show, the same red and black ensemble she wore last April when she was filmed for Advanced Style. In the video, she imparted these words of wisdom: “One must be interested in the world, not oneself only.”
Our thoughts are with Kaplan and her family, friends and loyal fashion fans. Check back here for news on Kaplan’s condition.
