From the 21 January, 1965 Palm Beach Daily News- 'Zuckerman presented with the first 'Martha Award'.

Ben Zuckerman accepted the first Martha Award for his outstanding achievement in fashion. After the award was presented, Ben Zuckerman showed some of his new season outfits.

A highlight were the many ensembles with half belts attached with buttons. Jackets were hip length and skirts were straight and easy. The collection was lighter but not soft, just less use of interfacing.

There were red, white, blue and grey coats. Materials were light textured, no tweeds or rough textures.

The top outfit is a two piece white linen skirt and jacket with black belt and buttons.

The lower ensemble was a printed silk suit with a skirt or jacket. Both outfits are by Ben Zuckerman.
