Kaplan Collapsing At Runway Show

February 28, 2012 by staff 

Kaplan Collapsing At Runway Show, Zelda Kaplan, 95, collapsed at Joanna Mastroianni’s Lincoln Center show yesterday and was pronounced dead at Roosevelt Hospital later that day. “I was sitting right next to her. She flopped over in my lap,” Ruth Finley, publisher of the Fashion Calendar, told the AP. “The show was just starting. I thought she fainted. Two men carried her out.”

Kaplan was a dedicated fashion lover who was known as a fixture on the social scene. In 2003, back when she was 87, the Times called her “New York’s oldest and most beloved night owl,” and she was regularly featured on the blog Advanced Style. But fashion wasn’t her only interest: She also traveled widely in Africa and passionately supported women’s rights.
