From the 1 August, 1956 Vogue- an advertisement for two lovely Zuckerman suits in black and white tweed. The top suit has an interesting cut-away jacket over a belted dress. The lower suit features a dress with a patent leather belt and a coat with a mock cape. Both models wear hats by Mr. John, who was a top milliner in the 1950's and 60's.

The suits were available at the Dayton Oval Room- which was a high end boutique in the Dayton Stores. Dayton's was founded in 1902 and closed its doors in 2001.

  1. So glad to find your blog and happy to see that someone appreciates Ben Zuckerman's talent! I hope you love the suit, it came from an outstanding estate of clothing and the woman who owned it knew many of the designers personally! Happy New Year!
