    DescriptionIntroduced on a grand scale at the 1925 Paris International Exposition, the new Art Deco style expressed modernity and new technologies that were changing the world. In the realm of fashion, it was the new "chic," representing glamour, luxury, and a sleek style. Tom Tierney captures fashion highlights from that period in this spectacular paper doll review. Two dolls and 28 costumes focus on an array of dramatic creations by outstanding designers of the early twentieth century. Included are a fur-trimmed cloak with an abstract modern design by Paul Poiret; a tightly pleated and richly colored gown by Mariano Fortuny; Helen Dryden's day dress in stark zebra stripes; a daring, two-piece knit swimsuit, featuring a bare midriff; as well as dramatic designs by Sonia Delaunay, Jeanne Lanvin, Coco Chanel, and other noted designers. An additional page features hats of the period -- everything from an exotic Poiret turban to Schiaparelli's novel "shoe" hat. An exciting display of elegant style and cool sophistication, this collection will not only delight paper doll fans but will also thrill collectors and devotees of Art Deco.
