Annie Flanders: Founding Editor of Details Magazine

From a New York Times obit by Penelope Green headlined “Annie Flanders, Founder of Details Magazine, Dies at 82”:

Annie Flanders, the ardent, russet-haired founding editor of Details magazine, the proudly independent chronicle of Downtown Manhattan in the 1980s, died on March 10 in Los Angeles.

In the post-disco era of the early 1980s, a combustible mix of art, music and fashion erupted out of the nightclubs, boutiques and art galleries found mostly below 14th Street. That was Ms. Flanders’s territory, chaotic but symbiotic, and its tribes were her people. And though that world was tiny, its cultural impact — the artwork of Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, the fashion designs of Isabel Toledo, Betsey Johnson and Stephen Sprouse, and even the shenanigans of a sassy club kid named Madonna — loomed large, and lingered.
