Fashions of the Pines. 1980’s.

1980.

After the success of the fashion shows of the 70’s it was decided to give it a more entertainment factor. Broadway singer, dancer, choreographer, and Pines resident George Reich was brought on board to add more entertainment. With his assistant Tom Allen he wanted dancers intermingling with the models. Reich cousin of longtime resident and builder Walter Reich started his career in Paris in 1949. He went onto working at MGM in films and choreographing noted performers shows. See more below in a FI News article.

Art was always involved with the fashion show. Artist Rodger Duncan creates the poster here. He would also create one for the benefit “From the Pines with Love” in 1990. The show was directed by Russell Graham and Robin Ackerman from Perry Ellis.
