LICK ME_How I Became Cherry Vanilla_book launch November 1, 2010

Dear Shaded Viewers,

XLickMe cover

Long awaited bio by Cherry Vanilla, I cannot wait to read this book. I knew Cherry at the beginning of my design career, she was singing at the first group fashion show I ever did in NYC put on by the Fashion Designers of America. When I was in LA I stayed at her amazing house with an iconic autographed photo of David Bowie and a painting made for her by her good friend Tim Burton.I had the pleasure of sleeping in the same bed where her close friend and the author of the forward to her book, Rufus Wainwright stayed.
