Seventies-era disco darling Stephen Burrows is giving it another shot. In an effort to reignite his ready-to-wear business, the designer brought a dose of old Seventh Avenue glamour to his New York fashion show. He showed in an empty space on West 38th Street and enlisted the help of legendary model-agent Bethann Hardison, who cast the show and gave the girls, including Anna Cleveland (daughter of Seventies icon Pat Cleveland), some pointers. Pat Cleveland was seated front and center in the crowd that included André Leon Talley, Tyson Beckford and model Alva Chinn, who with Cleveland modeled in the famous 1973 Versailles megashow, in which Burrows participated.
