  1. Loved the memorial article and story relating her lifelong connection with her Charlesgate roommate. I modeled Gunne Sax bridal gowns in 1970’s newspaper feature in News Times, in 1973 we selected my Gunne Sax brides maids gown as my former Charlesgate Hall roommate married Fred Friendly’s son at Wheatleigh Manor in Stockbridge after a four day event at FF’s compound. Later, I wore similar fashions in a photo shoot for Women’s Wear Daily set up at Country Day School where I was serving as Art Director 1970’s.

    Such an amazing fashion career! I loved wacing nostalgic as I read her success and extraordinary challenges she faced throughout her amazing life. Zimmerman and McClinlock represent one of yhe many lifelong friendships formed at BU.
    If I look in our Connecticut attic, I think I might even locate my bridesmaid gown – with vibrant violet blossoms and a tie securing my empire waist dress!

  2. I worked for Jessica McClintock in San Francisco as her staff photographer. I did her very first Jessica McClintock Perfume ad along with Vogue Ads and more. She was a joy to work with. I miss her dearly. May she rest in peace.
