Sequined black slip and reversible satin coat, worn together on the runway during the 1988 Parsons School of Design annual fashion show. The illustrated figures are shown standing in a subway setting, which coincides with the New York City subway token symbol that is created with paillettes on the lower back side of the slip/dress. As indicated on the front side of the illustration, this design was the recipient of the Albert Capraro Award. The back includes detailed information about the materials used and their prices. Two fabric samples are also attached to the front.
