Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This fine reproduction of a 1929 French fashion catalog features styles for all occasions. More than 50 color illustrations showcase elegant dresses, gowns, and coats from the designers of an influential and internationally renowned studio. Designs include a promenade and party frocks of silk, lace, and taffeta, all in the era's distinctive dropped-waist, knee-length mode, forming a panorama of fashions favored by flappers, society matrons, and other women of the 1920s.
A rare source of authentic period styles, this volume will prove an excellent guide for designers, costume historians, and collectors of vintage apparel. Color images of Jazz Age fashions are few and far between, and these full-page illustrations offer clear views of trimmings, seaming, and other details. Notes on each model include information about the costume's intended season and occasion, fabrics, and accessories.
