Being raised in a convent wasn’t all bad though. The sisters taught me a thing or two about cutting hair and even found me a steady job at the local salon but when you’re destined to be a star not even the almighty can stand in your way.
And so it was that I found myself singing on stage in the big smoke. “Lucy Deluxe” the signs would read, a tribute to my sheen auburn hair that seemed to get people’s attention and draw in the crowds.
The hottest ticket in town at this time was The Coco Five, an underground jazz club run by the undisputed man about town Patch Defontain or the “Duke”. Rough around the edges but with an inherent sense of style, the Duke knew how to deliver what the people wanted.
Together we took The Coco Five to another level and created an environment where the cool hunters collided with society - a collision that helped shape the fashion revolution and the origin of style.
