dovima-8

Just to give you a little bit about her life and work. So then you will have the connection to fashion with my beloved elephants……

This iconic photo represents the work of Model Dovima who was best known for you modeling work that done with Elephants. 
Born in New York City, Dovima was discovered on a sidewalk in New York by an editor at Vogue, and had a photo shoot with Irving Penn the following day. She worked closely with Richard Avedon, whose photograph of her in a floor-length evening gown with circus elephants—”Dovima with the Elephants”—taken at the Cirque d’hiver, Paris, in August 1955, has become an icon. The gown was the first evening dress designed for Christian Dior by his new assistant, Yves Saint-Laurent.
