The Steinberg Sisters

I couldn’t wait to get home and write a post about these lovely ladies. My friend Jill and I met the Steinberg sisters while walking around Brighton Beach. The sisters were more than happy to stop for some photos and share some stories with us as well. Both ladies attended FIT when they were younger. They wanted to follow in the footsteps of their father who came from Poland, studied in London and worked in the Garment Industry. They proudly announced that he could, ” Whip up a winter coat in a half an hour.”

We caught the sisters on the way back from a shopping adventure and a trip to the library where they were looking at fashion books. They told us about exciting encounters with several celebrities including Liberace, Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller, Valentino, and Yves Saint Laurent, who they described as a “quiet man”. When I told them how much I admired their style, they replied that their clothes don’t cost much, but that they have many very pretty things.

The Steinbergs were thrilled to meet us, as they meet few people to discuss fashion with. The sisters who live in the same apartment building, only a few floors apart, made a date to meet with us next week. I’ll share some more photos of these fascinating ladies and hopefully hear some more great stories!

  • Looking forward to it!

    Both ladies have a great sense how to combine colours. Great.
    I mentioned it once, I love this no make up but lipstick look.
    Nothing better with gray hair than such an intense lipstick.
    Looking forward to the next pics with these gals.
