Original fashion design artwork by Edith Head for her airport-inspired clothing line, accomplished in pencil, felt tip, and pastel on an off-white 14.5 x 19.5 piece of artist's board. The sketch shows a stylish woman in a baggy dress holding a small piece of luggage. Marked at the top by Head in black felt tip, "The 'Airport Collection,'" and prominently signed in the lower left, "Edith Head." In fine condition. Head designed a line of "Airport" inspired clothing for the Hystron Fiber Company utilizing their Trivera polyester fabric. Named the 'Airport Look' collection, the line was launched with a fashion show in January 1970. The line was not a success and was quietly withdrawn.
