October 1947. A caption on the back of the photo reads:
Dramatic elegance suggests a sophisticated evening. Pale blue feather plumes curl gracefully over the black rayon crepe dinner gown, a Fanya creation from Caldwell-Gray Co., for San Francisco’s “Fashion Premiere in Paris” on October 16. A floor length drape sweeps over one shoulder from a deep dolman sleeve. The skirt with intricate front drape reaches just above the ankles, a new length gaining favour this season.
