The present work is Dalí’s design for a fashion contest under the theme The Woman of the Future from 1953. The model dramatically posing with the dress was Toni Hollingsworth, one of Dalí’s great muses.
Due to the sheer size of Dalí’s creation Philippe Halsman, the photographer, was unable to shoot the dress in the streets and instead positioned Toni on the roof of the Roxy theatre in New York.
