Bonwit Teller window display featuring a satin dress by Mollie Parnis. Behind the mannequin is an illustrated panel of a skeleton made up of incongruous components, like a clock and a bird. The mannequin is wearing a green satin dress, a fur wrap, heeled shoes, long gloves, a satin headpiece and jewelry. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Art in a Fashion Mood... our green satin study by Young Couture designer Mollie Parins. Designers Sixth Floor"
