Item #42893

A delightful card, the front showing the watercolor of a rural-clad child gazing a group of mannikins; the verso showing a number of eyes which look down upon two young (Parsons?) art students, the drawings suggesting Donovan's progress in the fashion world.

Carrie Donovan, one of the fashion world's great figures, graduated in 1950 from the Parsons School of Design, and went on to become an editor for Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and the New York Times Magazine, where her style and verve brought her a legendary celebrity during a career that spanned a half century.
