From 18 January 1963 Palm Beach Daily News- Ben Zuckerman showing today.

'Ben Zuckerman, Hall of Fame fashion great, will be here personally with his complete collection of suits, coats and costumes for resort and spring... trend setting silhouettes in exotic fabrics and colors will be informally modelled from ten 'til five... typically this graphite French flannel vestee with French plaid chiffon dress. $385'

This ad shows an really interesting outfit, rather unusual for Zuckerman. The dress is a floaty chiffon not particularly tailored, paired with a rather severely tailored vest.

The outfit was sold at Martha's in Palm Beach, FL. This store was one of six, based originally in New York, that sold only the finest clothing, including excellent copies of French designers such as Dior, Givenchy and Chanel.
