    A tiny framed 5'7" Native American/German Cathee Dahmen (my mother) was discovered by Eileen Ford herself. An art student, Cathee lived with famed fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez and quickly became his muse for many pastel portraits. Eileen Ford quickly discovered the young girl in Antonio's portraits noticing the unique way Cathee posed using her hands and body in such a way. Cathee soon became The Ford Agency's top earner for three years in the late 60's.

    Yes she was really a first in the modelling industry. She was of course very thin but only 5'7" but could pose her *** off. It was all about her hands and working the camera. She even had a couple of tattoo's and back in those days that was really obsurd but they photographed them anyway.
    She was truely an inspiration to all aspiring models.
