Back in the days when I was still a struggling "newbie" model on the scene....Quietfire was the name on EVERY model's lips. He was responsible for Whitney's signature look at the beginning of her ascension from singer to superstar.

When Whitney launched her management company "Nippy Inc"...EVERYBODY wanted Quietfire to "beat their faces!!"

I had the opportunity to work alongside him as Designer Douglas Says premiered his new "Plus-U Collection" last year.

His death is a great loss to the entertainment community. He will be missed.
