Description

French fashions reigned supreme during the first half of the 20th century from ostentatious gowns featuring the hourglass look by Callot Soeurs, to feminine evening dresses of the Fifties by Jacques Fath. In between came the "boyish" tubular look of the Twenties; suits and dresses that were wide at the shoulders and slim at the hips during the Thirties, and a "New Look" dependent on the lavish use of fabric during the Forties. Tom Tierney's carefully researched and expertly rendered collection featuring 50 years of French high fashion includes three dolls modeling haut couture apparel by Schiaparelli, Paquin, Poiret, Lanvin, Patou, Worth, Lelong, Chanel, Gres, Ricci, Balenciaga, Dior, and 18 other fashion giants. Descriptive notes accompany a costume extravaganza that will delight paper doll fans, collectors, and fashion designers alike. 3 dolls and 32 full-color costumes."show more
