Overview

Written at the request of her children, Fashioned: The Secret Life of a Mom chronicles Joanne King's improbable journey from her childhood in the Bronx to the international world of fashion and music. A chance encounter at Studio 54 launched her on a modeling career in Paris, Milan, and New York, working with an iconic fashion editor, an Academy Award-winning actor, and a world renowned artist. With fortitude and grit, she managed harrowing experiences in her youth and, as a model living in Paris, survived the manipulative, unsavory, and dangerous denizens of that seemingly glamorous world. Serendipity led her to record with an international disco group, take an evening stroll with a music legend, and revisit a past life that foretold her present.
After overcoming personal losses and a near-death experience, Joanne emerged from self-exploration with a startling realization that would alter her life's trajectory.
