ZELDA Kaplan, died whilst sat in the front row of Joanna Mastroianni’s New York catwalk show. She was 95.

Says Ruth Finley, publisher of The Fashion Calendar, in the New York Times:

“She flopped over in my lap. The show was just starting. I thought she fainted.”

Such is the power of the fashion. (Next year everyone will be doing it.)

Says designer Richie Rich in the  New York Post:

“Passing away in the front row was how it was meant to be. Zelda loves fashion, so she died for fashion. She would have wanted to go out in style. Zelda always said, ‘Live, live, live and have fun’.”
