DAMAST, Gloria King,

Born December 2, 1927, died of chronic heart problems on March 16, 2020, at Daughters of Miriam Nursing Home, Clifton, NJ. Gloria, who had her own public relations business for more than 25 years, made a career in the fashion industry as a PR/Advertising Director for a large childrenswear manufacturer, and a PR/Fashion Director for a major hosiery company. In the retail business, she got her start selling and buying for leading stores throughout the country, and also carried out corporate PR, publicity and advertising campaigns for the apparel, maternity, and accessories markets, for other children’s companies, and for the interior design industry. A pioneer in plus sizes, she started one of the first schools to develop new modeling talent for the field. She also arranged licensing agreements between designers and manufacturers. More recently, with her real estate license, she rented, bought and sold condos, townhouses and foreclosed property for various realtors and developers in New Jersey.
