An ad for a Zuckerman suit, circa 1956. The jacket is quite long, to mid thigh, which is a rather unusual length for the times. It features curved pockets at the hips and a large fur trim, probably fox. Ths skirt is also long and very form fitting.
This suit was modelled by Sunny Harnett. She was born Anne Marie Hartnett in 1924 in New York. She was one of the top models of the 1950's. After retiring she went to work for the famous modelling agency Ford as Eileen Ford's assistant.
Anglo Fabrics was a very high quality fabric mill, used by top American designers. Sadly it closed after 52 years in business in 1998.
