    Read the words, get the goods

    Oh, everybody is a fashionista these days. But before there were “istas” there were fashion writers.

    Patricia Jacobs, aka PJ Cobbs, is a British-born fiber artist of hand-painted accessories for home and body who makes New York her home.

    However, you probably know her in her other life as a fashion reporter and travel-style writer.

    In the past, you’re familiar with Patricia’s fashion coverage at the New York Post, or maybe even some of her saucy tidbits on the paper’s Page Six gossip column. Then, there is her occasional fashion piece for pubs like In Style, upscale travel and living for Millionaire and Black Enterprise, some Marie Claire, Shape, NY Daily News, Hamptons, and so on and so on.

    Fast forward to her life as an artist, where her accolades and credentials are just as esteemed as her writing. She explains, “For me, painting on silk for fashion and function is a passion. In a time of fleeting, throwaway fashion, it transcends trends and it provides beauty to both the wearer and the observer in its perfect, colorful form.”

    If she’s in a chatty mood, maybe she will tell you about covering the collections in Paris or Survivor, having her wearable art worn by Queen Latifah, Heidi Klum and Daisy Fuentes. Or, how she was talking to me when my water broke. Hey, you never know.
