October 1947. A caption on the back of the photo reads:
A draped bustle effect gives flattering “derriere emphasis” to the black and white zebra print of rayon crepe, designed by Fanya of San Francisco’s Caldwell-Gray, Inc. for introduction in Paris on October 16. Below the long tunic flashes a fanfare of accordion pleats. A black crepe redingote, trimmed in matching print, completes the ensemble.
