Unknown woman modeling a Traina-Norell ensemble in a room full of women seated at tables, possibly for a charity fashion show. The model is shown on a raised platform wearing a black hat, heels, and gloves while holding a matching handbag. The ensemble, which includes a knee-length fitted skirt and long-sleeved top with a deep v-shaped neckline, appears to be part of Norell's 1946 collection that is known for using the "fencer jacket silhouette". The photograph was part of a larger scrapbook that can be found in Box OSx-2, Folder 4.
