October 1947. A caption on the back of the photo reads:
A black faille redingote, worn over an exotic black and white zebra print frock, wraps around to fasten at one side with self buttons. The eye-catching print lines the rippled front and trims the wide cuffs of the ensemble. A Fanya original, designed for San Francisco’s “Fashion Premiere in Paris” on October 16.
