Talley began his career in fashion at the age of 28 after snagging a job as a reporter at Women’s Wear Daily.

He’d moved to New York City in the 1970s following a stint in Rhode Island where he attended the prestigious Brown University.

Talley earned a master’s degree in French studies, with initial plans to become a French teacher – which were later thwarted by his involvement in the artsy NYC scene where he mingled with the likes of Andy Warhol and Karl Lagerfeld.
