Model wearing yellow silk chiffon dress by Philip Hulitar with yellow satin waistband, leaning against piano on the telephone. Mr. Hulitar was noted for his designs of sophisticated cocktail dresses and evening gowns. His work was featured in the US collection shown at the World’s Fair in Brussels in 1958. “The star of a gifted designer has risen recently on the fashion horizon,” The New York Times reported after he opened his own firm in 1949.
