The collection includes two costumes created for Ella Fitzgerald for concert performances.

The second, mint green silk jumpsuit heavily adorned with rhinestones, faux pearls and fringe on the sleeves and waistline, was worn by the singer on stage in the early 1970s. An inside label reads "Elizabeth Courtney/Costumes Hollywood."
