Bonwit Teller window display featuring an evening dress designed by Ben Reig styled on a mannequin with a fur shawl, black shoes with jewel trim, and hat. There is sand on the floor, and a collection of tree branches sits in front of the mannequin, creating a desert-like scene. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "THE GRAND DESIGN for after-five... from Bonwit's Designer Collections Sixth Floor...by Ben Reig."
