Bonwit Teller window display featuring a party dress by designer Maurice Rentner. A beaded curtain covers the entire display and the mannequin is posed in front as if in the middle of dancing. The mannequin is wearing a short sleeved dress with a bow back, heeled shoes and shoulder length gloves. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Bonwit's after dark treasures... by Maurice Rentner... Designers Salon Sixth Floor."
