Fashion, another aspect to Vilém Heckel’s diverse portfolio: Škoda Auto and Charlotte Sheffield Miss USA 1957

This is a somewhat interesting followup to the previous post.His passion was the high mountains, but there are any other aspects to Vilém Heckel”s diverse portfolio, one of which was the fashion and advertising industry. By sheer coincidence, my recent  involvement with the Vilém Heckel Photographic Archive coincided with Charlotte Sheffield Miss USA 1957 opening up the New Škoda Auto Museum followed by a celebratory meeting with dignitaries, including the daughter and current Archive Director, Helena Heckelová at the Prague Castle. Both events occurred on November 26th, 2012 and Demotix has picked up the Museum Opening, here are a few photos from the celebration at the Prague Castle.
