Remembering a Legend: A Tribute to Mickey Rosmarin, a Fashion Champion and Great Friend

Letter from the Editor, Holly Moore:

As we were going to press with this issue, I was consumed with the past 22 years of PaperCity, flipping through 264 of our very large broadsheet issues, searching for the best, funniest, the zeitgeist moments in print. As I was scrutinizing these issues, I received the phone call that beloved friend, brilliant merchant Mickey Rosmarin, founder and owner of Tootsies, had unexpectedly died of a heart attack.

I had just relived 22 years of parties at Tootsies, fashion pages, a story on Mickey’s beautiful Houston home, an “Inside the Head of Mickey” feature from when he moved into his glorious new store in West Ave in Houston. And I had just laughed with Becca Cason Thrash about how, when we started the magazine, we had to borrow the Tootsies loading dock for the 18-wheeler to deliver the first issue. Who knew you needed a loading dock? Mickey to the rescue.

Mickey has been a rescuer, champion, believer and friend to so many people, charities and businesses. Tootsies will continue in glorious fashion, but the loss of Mickey the man leaves a hole in this magazine, and in our hearts.
