(Long Island, NY) On January 31, 2007 elegant and trendy hot new Mantra restaurant was the perfect elaborate setting for the launch of the latest issue of Talent in Motion Magazine. This wonderful New York based magazine just celebrated ten fabulous years of the new and the old, a new beginning and a happy ending. Lovely Publisher and Editor Brooks of TIM played host to New York’s young elite and creative coo of the Arts, Theatre and Fashion.
Talent In Motion Magazine is a quarterly publication distributed and sold in cafes, new stores and boutiques throughout Manhattan and nationwide in Barnes and Noble bookstores.
One of the New York personalities that attended was glamorous socialite Stephanie Parker who has parlayed her celebrity event outings into a enormous data base of event photography.
Ms. Parker’s photography career was created because of her ultimate passion for the camera and her Rich and Famous Celebrity LIfestyle. Her collection includes fashion, political, art and international celebrities around the world. She recently covered the Lorenzo Quinn Art Exhibit and The Victoria Secret Fashion Show at the Cannes Film Festival. For more information please visit www.stephanieparker.com.
Over champagne cocktails I chatted with stunning brunette artist Kathrina Miccio. Kathrina Miccio’s passion has been a life long journey for the visual expression of emotions and feelings through her art. Ms. Miccio holds a degree in Bachelor of Fine Arts from the distinguished Wagner College and has an Associate Degree in Illustration from the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan.
Her works of art can be seen in a permanent gallery at “The Cutting Room” in New York City, which has been on exhibit since 2001. These paintings include rock jazz legends and musicians ranging from Keith Richards to Louis Armstrong. Private collectors, Andrea Bocelli and Whoopi Goldberg have commissioned her to paint their portraits. To learn more about Kathrina please visit www.miccioart.com
Fashionista Zeyna Gagne from Marc Jacobs and I were enjoying our conversation discussing upcoming Fashion Week when press and fashion photographers created a media blitz for fashion designer Hillary Flowers to showcase her fashion show. Streetwear and Club Ingenue, Designer Hillary Flowers designs are young, provocative, hip and sexy one of a kind creations that are just perfect for glamorous evenings in New York City. Petite blonde, Ms. Flower’s fashions can be located in trendy boutiques in Los Angeles, Manhattan and Southampton.
Her entourage of makeup artist, models, hair stylist, club promoters, photographers and videographers collaborate to produce her one woman show and fashion events at fabulous venues around Manhattan including Show, Spy, Amazon and Crobar.

Other celebrities that attended were, Actor Joe Manuela from “Searching for Bobby D”, Actor Vinnie Guido, Designer Count Vlad and Publicist Ron Caparella.
The highlight of the evening was when The Village People’s Cowboy Randy Jones galloped in and caused quite a stir. Still tall, dark and incredibly handsome I had a chance to talk to Randy about his latest CD, “Ticket to the World” that he is promoting.
Although we know him as The Cowboy from The Village People, Jones has won many awards including Billboard Magazine’s Dance Forum Award, the prestigious Golden Lion and American Music award just to name a few. For more information please go to www.randyjonesworld.com
