Debra Rapoport, 73
"Frame your face with hats and one-of-a-kind neckpieces. First, be yourself, trust yourself. Hats top you off, they frame the face. Neckpieces should be large: bibs, boas and breastplates. Creatively there are no rules, and where there are no rules, there is no fear. I like recycled, gifted and thrifted. It’s about building on your body, ABC: assemble, build, create.” Debra is wearing a necklace made with dried eggplant from Armenia and rings that each tell a story — whether from travel, an artist friend or recycled from somewhere or someone.
