Girls.
Like apples and honey on
Rosh Hashana, models and
cars are synonymous with the
auto show. Beginning Janu-
ary 6th, the North American
International Auto Show will
roar into Detroit's Cobo Hall.
Every inch of chrome will be
polished, every salesman's
card supply restocked, each
narrator's script committed to
memory, every ignition ready
to turn.
And Margery Krevsky and
Harriett Fuller are already
half-way to the finish line.
Krevsky and Fuller, equal
partners in Productions-Plus
in West Bloomfield, a produc-
tion and talent agency, have
produced and coordinated the
models and presentations for
Pontiac, Nissan and Infiniti in
this year's auto show. They

started working on the 1990
show last May and will wrap
up the end of April. Because
there are 50-60 auto shows in
different cities around the
country, Detroit is actually
the midway point.
"The auto show starts in
September, and it goes until
April," Fuller says. "They
preview the cars for three
months before Detroit even
sees the cars.
"But Detroit gets the most
attention," she continues,
"because it is the interna-
tional show."

How did two Jewish girls
get to know so much about
cars and auto shows? Through
long hours, careful attention
to detail, and lots of hard
work. Each has spent twenty
years or so in the fashion
business before teaming up.
Fuller grew up in Detroit,
attending Mumford, and mar-
rying real estate developer
husband Sheldon. While rais-
ing her two children, she was
a top runway model, both here
and in New York, working
with Bill Blass, Oscar de la
Renta and others. She also

modeled for newspapers,
catalogs and auto shows. She
got her start by winning a
contest in New York, and
proudly points out she was the
first "Miss Northland."
Krevsky heads up the
management end. She grew
up in Lock Haven, Pa., out-
side of Phildelphia, and has a
bachelor's degree from
University of Pennsylvania, a
master's in education from
Temple University, and a
degree from Tobe-Colburn, a
fashion merchandising school.
In New York, she worked for

Glamour
Macy's and
magazine before coming to
Detroit to hold a variety of
jobs, from manager of the
fashion bureau to fabric
buyer, at Hudson's. She later
became fashion merchandise
manager for Alvin's. Husband
Seymour is a Birmingham
pediatrician, and together
they raise son Joseph Stearns,
who, laughs, Krevsky, is
"really into rock music."
Come Valentine's Day in
February, Productions-Plus
will celebrate six successful
years producing fashion
shows, auto shows, seminars
and providing talent to adver-
tising agencies.
"We were friends in the
business," says Krevsky.
"The company was something
we both wanted to do. We
started talking and it just
happened. Because we have
such different backgrounds,
we make a good team."
Productions-Plus started on
a card table with an answer-
