Brocade and Crystal - 1958

Yesterday, I showed you a beautiful image taken by Gleb Derujinsky in 1958.  Here is another in the same series.  I'd really love to see behind the scenes shots of Derujinsky setting up the lighting and the placement of the models for these photos.  As you'll see, each is very different.  More tomorrow!

The white silk brocade dress is by Mollie Parnis.  Interesting shape to that armhole.  Dress sold for $145 in 1958 (about $1,169 in today's dollar.)  Hat by Irene of New York.
