Description

Fashion presentation featuring nine models wearing evening dresses in front of a painted backdrop that is signed by Cecil Beaton. Although the setting looks similar to photographs of a Traina-Norell fashion presentation held in Palm Beach in 1949, it is not known where this photograph was taken, or how many of the designs shown here were produced by Traina-Norell. This photograph was part of a larger scrapbook that can be found in Box OSx-3, Folder 6.
