Trina in After Dark

Ms. Parks appeared in After Dark, the "Magazine of Entertainment" in the November, 1971, issue
as a model of "African inspired fashions designed for easy living."

From the magazine caption, Dancer Trina Parks sports the classic karate suit adapted for street wear.
The gold-orange-and-black creation is made of doubleknit Dacron and wool.

Trina Parks and actor-dancer George Patterson model the evening look in kaftans.
His is of French Lurex in orange, silver and green, with green velvet trim.
Hers, in Indian mulberry silk, is distinguished from the classic kaftan because of its cut on the bias.
