Fifth Avenue Fashion Show, ca. 1957

During the 1950s, Fifth Avenue was home to a vibrant fashion scene and hosted fashion shows for the benefit of the well-to-do tourist set on most Saturdays throughout the winter months. These shows, most of which were organized and narrated by artist Lloyd Kiva New, featured local models wearing the most en mode examples of Scottsdale haute couture. Less affluent residents had the chance to snag these coveted pieces at the annual blow-out sale known as the Thieves' Market.
