This dip into the magical years of 1960 and onwards in Paris and London with my friend Cyclops is an attempt to recapture, with as much detail as possible, those early bohemian Paris days, days highly favorable to creativity and those London days of economic abundance that allowed enterprising people to develop their individual talents. For Cy, those years broke the rule that working class men did not go into book dealing or open their own businesses. For me, with little cash and no family help, I managed to open a boutique, establish the first textile designs studio in London, and later in Paris, to become a fashion forecaster to the world's top fashion houses and printers. My memoir, Technicolor Dreamin' - In her own fashion, was published in 2018.
