From the 5 February 1957 Chicago Daily Tribune.

'Its the 1930s in the fashion world right now! And that means pleats, loose fitting Chanel type jackets, tunics and capes. Ben Zuckerman designed this navy serge suit ($245). The jacket, slightly indented at the waist, is to be worn open to show the white silk blouse with the neckline bow.'

In March of 1957, Ben Zuckerman was part of a show put on by several leading designers of the time, including Monte-Santo & Pruzan and Maurice Rentner. The show was held in Chicago. Zuckerman showed the only coloured coats in the show. The first was an oyster white was full and flowing with elbow length sleeves and two highly placed buttons. It cost $199.95. The other coat was a mauvey tweed with two high fake pockets and two larger real ones just below the waist.  It buttoned once at the neck and once at the waist and was a slimmer cut. The sleeves were three-quarter length. This coat also cost $199.95.
