My Memories of Oleg Cassini sparked by the Doyle Auctions of his estate June 27th .

I was twenty-nine when I met Oleg Cassini covering a fashion event at Rothman's Restraunt in East Norwich for our "SunStorm Arts" monthly journal.  I knew Cassini lived near my parents in OysterBay Cove on Say Hill Rd. yet this was the first time we met. He was older, elegant and loved women. He focused his attention on me and I was flattered. I had the moment to ask him did he remember my mother in law Helen Dunn, the designer. He was surprised, and answered, yes very well. He always loved her work. Asking what she was doing he continued to show interest in Helen's life his warmth as a person shown through. I explained Helen still designed but did not have a  design house as she once had when they knew one another. When my then husband Victor Forbes retrieved me from the event and he also chatted briefly with Oleg.

Thanks, Vic for forwarding me this release. It brought back great memories. Jamie
