New York Times and Five Top Designers Collaborate for Project, Elvis Photo Chosen

November 02, 2011

The New York Times asked five fashion designers to pick their favorite images from the NY Times archives to make available for purchase online. These 50 images were curated by five top fashion designers: Diane Von Furstenberg, Michelle Smith, Prabal Gurung, Vera Wang, and Zac Posen.

Michelle Smith, known for the Milly by Michelle Smith collection, has defined youthful, luxurious style since 2001.  One of Michelle’s top 10 photos that was chosen was a 1956 Alfred Wertheimer photo of Elvis Presley titled “Hold Me Tight.”

A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of these photographs from the NYT Store Online will benefit the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
