Today's NY Times runs a piece in its Sunday Styles section about the life of former Duluthian, Engwalls flower arranger and Denfeld graduate, Robert Isabell, who at the age of 57 was found dead last week in his Greenwich Village town home. The Times piece, "He Says it With Flowers," written by Christopher Mason, embellishes the life of this famous party designer.
Quoting from Mason...
"Whether strewing glitter at Studio 54 in the late ’70s; tossing flowers on the coffin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, whose funeral he coordinated in 1994; or herding boatloads of V.I.P.’s like Madonna and Henry Kissinger onto Liberty Island for the debut of Tina Brown’s Talk magazine in 1999, Mr. Isabell was the master of a unique brand of stagecraft, creating events that powerfully evoked their era."
