1957 Fashion Ad

1957 Red Brick and Gray Stone

A fun fashion ad showing a woman in a striped knit dress and cool red hat.

From the pages of the September 1957 edition of Mademoiselle magazine,this is a dual ad for both fashion and fiber. The model is wearing a vibrant dress in colors described as red brick and gray stone from the labs of Colorray (solution-dyed rayon fiber with captive color). This type of ad was not uncommon in mid-century fashion magazines as man-made fiber technology was booming in the fashion world. The dress is by Pat Hartly who offered the dress for $23.00.
