Creative Dressing With Debra Rapoport

I paid a visit to my good friend Debra Rapoport yesterday. She helped me plan a seminar that I will be teaching at IED Roma next week. We had a great conversation about creativity, dressing, and aging. I also got to test out my new lense on her. I love the results, do you? ( Some of you have asked about Debra’s hats. If you would like to get in touch with her send  an email to )

  • That kind of creative genius comes from within – you can't get that at school or from magazines. I love this woman's powerful magnetic style. Your photos are excellent!

  • One of the many things I love about Debra's outfits is that they boldly proclaim what a confident, creative woman she is, and this one is no exception. I love the jumpsuit under the sweater, and that is a wicked headpiece!
