I met this lovely young woman near the great educational wall at Coney island. It was a balmy day and all the international fashionistas were out. I asked if she wouldn't mind posing in front of the famed muraled concrete wall and she was more than happy to oblige. She spoke English beautifully, and was traveling with family and friends. I asked where she was from and if she was a fashion student. She told me she was from Shanghai and although she appreciated the art of fashion, which she held well, was an industrial arts student. One of the things I like about Coney Island, NY, etc. is you can just sit on a bench, and meet all kinds of interesting people from all over the world. February, 23, 2014.
