Fashion Designer Charles Nolan Is Dead At 53

Charles Nolan, the fashion designer preferred by Democratic women, and the partner to financial columnist and DNC treasure Andrew Tobias (pictured L-R), died at his home yesterday of head and neck cancer. He was 53. Tobias successfully battled the cancer several years ago, but it returned in the fall and “moved aggressively.” In 2003, Nolan joined Howard Dean’s presidential campaign, returning to the fashion industry afterward to start his own label.
