From Life Magazine, 24 September 1951 - 'Town tweeds include Nettie Rosenstein's cape-collar suit  (left) with black yarn fringe ($235), Ben Zuckerman's fitted suit ($185) worn with a fur lined coat ($500) and Dior's checked, straight short coat with a Persian lamb collar ($345).'

For Ben Zuckerman to be mentioned in the same sentence as Nettie Rosenstein and Dior goes to show how highly acclaimed he was. Nettie Rosenstein was well know for her lovely black dresses and designed the inaugural gown for Mamie Eisenhawer. Christian Dior needs know introduction as his fashion house, created in 1947 is still well know and well regarded today.
