The bulk of the cards feature fashion styles from the 1952 Fashion Frocks spring collection, with nine representing the 1959 spring and summer collections. Fabric swatches are pinned to most of the cards. Each card contains information about colors, sizes, price, and an effusive marketing pitch for the dress design on that card. Also included in the collection are letters from the company to Fashion Frocks, Inc. representatives, delivery schedules, a stock list, and a broadside detailing bonus gifts for sales representatives with large orders.
