Description

Claudia Morgan modeling an evening coat from Norell's autumn/winter 1970 collection in front of an audience that appears to be sitting in the designer's studio. The coat includes a full skirt with a wide fur border, oversized fur sleeve cuffs, and an oversized standing fur collar. This exact coat was featured in an advertisement for Qiana nylon, which indicates that it was made with green velvet (by Qiana) and sable trim. The advertisement also shows a wide green velvet belt worn at the waist, which is difficult to see from this photograph.
