1985 Billy Beyond in Diane Pernet shot by David LaChapelle for Interview Magazine

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I’ve been trying to put some order in my fashion archives and came upon the image that Billy Beyond sent to me a few years ago when he heard I’d lost most of my fashion archives. Billy Beyond was always ahead of his time with his Disco Model  Agency.

Anybody out there, if you happen to have any tracks of my fashion back in the 80’s, please send it to me.
