This wasn’t Jay Philbrick’s first time photographing a model on a mountainside wearing this purple parachute dress. But the Eaglet spire in Franconia, New Hampshire, was the trickiest location yet.For this session, Philbrick needed a model
Nylon parachute dress in International Orange, 1974. Kamali began experimenting with unusual materials, producing dresses and jumpsuits from parachute silks. To capitalize on the original use of the fabric these pieces were constructed with drawstrings in place in order to adjust the fit of the garment. Her 1975 “parachute” collection was a huge success. In later years, the material used would be changed to a more durable and water-repellent nylon.
