    Hi -- this is Annamay! I'm in the center at right. This was a Fashion Show that was given at the school -- we are all students from the Fasion Design class. I won a medal at Graduation -- to my great surprise. Vincent Copolla, a prominent designer of the time, saught me out as was his custom, to help start young designers off on their path. Lord and Taylor one time displayed in all their windows a tribute to him -- his designs of coats and suits and with his photo displayed and commentary remarking on his efforts to help beginners in the field. He bought several of my deisigns, which I saw worked up -- but perhaps regretably, after a couple of months, I forsook the field for Fashion Illustration. The Illustration field worked for me, as well -- but after the 60's photography moved in and illustrators no longer could find work.
