Scene and Heard: Gladys Perint Palmer
Neiman Marcus, Barbara Brookins and Gail Glasser gathered acolytes of Gladys Perint Palmer to toast the publication of her second book, Adam & Yves (Firefall Media), on Tuesday, June 4, at the department store’s Rotunda Restaurant in San Francisco. The illustrated fashion history is made up of Perint Palmer’s famed drawings of runway and couture collections that have appeared in the New York Times, Vogue and in the San Francisco Examiner. In addition to the new book, many guests brought cherished illustrations done by Perint Palmer (that had been published in the ’90s) for her to sign. Perint Palmer told her fans, “I aim to amuse and inform,” after explaining that from an early age she learned that she could get attention with her drawings. Whenever she was on a train or bus, she said, people would stop and look at images that she sketched. But Perint Palmer also admitted her artistic skills sometimes caused trouble. “Teachers would always say to me, ‘Gladys stop scribbling,’” she quipped.
