Over the course of her career, she photographed the women's fashion of Christian Dior, Pierre Cardin, and Yves Saint-Laurent and reported on haute couture shows from Paris and Rome. Her photographs are known for their elegance, glamour, and use of lifelike settings that contrast with the designs being showcased.

Models photographed by Relang include Jean Patchett, Linda Morand, Ina Balke, Isa Stoppi, Elsa Martinelli, Simone D'Aillencourt, and Suzy Parker. She was awarded the Federal Cross of Merit in 1972 and the David Octavius Hill Medal in 1973.

Regina Relang died in Munich in 1989. These fabulous black and white photos are part of her work that she took classic models during the 1950s.
