Mickey championed talent. He was uncompromising in his pursuit of perfection -- and achieved his lofty ideas through thoughtful materials, simple implementations, hard work and charm. Mickey recognized potential -- and drove me to creative achievement that stretched my skill set, expanded my imagination, and made me realize my dreams.
Mickey was uncompromising - set impossible deadlines -- insurmountable goals -- but always had the remarkable intuition to be way ahead of the curve -- in everything he undertook.
Highland Village was Mickey's incubator for amazing ideas and revolutionary design - from his taking a chance on the very first collections by Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors, to dance parties and fashion shows in his fashion palaces to Amazing windows celebrating Diverse Works Hair Ball, Diffa's Denim Jackets, and the very first Photofest. Acheiving ground-breaking ads in W,PaperCity, 713, Town & Country, Texas Monthly, The Houston Chronicle and Post, and oodles of Direct Mail-- Mickey was always fresh - inspired by 30's art deco but always modern.
I will miss you Mickey Rosmarin -- thank-you for the amazing memories.
