Bonwit Teller window display featuring a shirtdress for evening wear by Traina-Norell, which appears to be made from brocade fabric. The sign at the bottom of the image indicates that this display was tied-in with promotion for the Rosalind Russell film "The Girl Rush". The background was possibly painted by Andy Warhol, who helped create Bonwit Teller's window displays during this time period.
