that era Flutie emerged as the model mogul best able to take an
unlikely prospect (usually from the American Midwest) and gloss
her until she was cutting edge fashion personified. The shift
from the Nineties to the Zeros saw a reorientation of Flutie's
focus. It's almost as if he needed more than the annual ritual
of taking an unknown and turning her into a runway/editorial/campaign
icon to keep his fires burning.

icon on a mass scale (see his reinvention of James King's career).
Needless to say from word one my questions were out the window.
Here is Flutie's authoritative spin on his new vision.
