Though women were featured in a few of the images, the fashion show was for men.

Burnis McCloud was the photographer of choice for an amazing number of organizations.  He helped produce this program with the imagined fashions of the future as projected in 1957.  The Futuristic Club was formed in 1955.  In 1957, Arthur Butler, Jr. was the President, John D. Bryant was the Treasurer and Charles E. Johnson was the Recording Secretary.

Examining the progam reveals advertisements for businesses in the Five Points area, many featuring McCloud photographs.
