Great Fashion Designs of the Forties Paper Dolls: 32 Haute Couture Costumes by Hattie Carnegie, Adrian, Dior and Others (Dover Paper Dolls)

Tidning med 2 klippdockor och 32 plagg

Fashions from the 1940s rank among the most popular and most influential
in modern times. In vogue again today, these classic designs —
characterized by wide, padded shoulders and slim silhouettes — were

For this modestly priced paper doll collection, noted
illustrator and fashion authority Tom Tierney has painstakingly
researched and meticulously re-created in full color the trend-setting
styles of the 1940s. Two dolls and 32 lavish outfits for evening and day
wear include Schiaparelli's dark blue wool suit accented with large
gold buttons; an Adrian cocktail dress in crepe, with a hand-painted
golden-rope motif; a four-tiered wool dress by Germaine Monteil; an
elegant wedding gown of starched white muslin and white eyelet
embroidery from Henri Bendel; Hattie Carnegie's dinner pajamas — a
bespangled floral print accented with a wide sash in violent pink; and a
magnificent black taffeta evening coat worn over a short lace evening
dress — both by Balenciaga.
Also shown are stunning designs by Jo
Copeland, Jeanne Lanvin, Mainbocher, Dior, Norman Norell, Adele Simpson,
Mollie Parnis, Muriel King, Pierre Balmain, Maurice Rentner, Edward
Molyneux, Omar Kiam, Robert Piguet, and Jacques Fath. Descriptions are
included for the outfits, while notes offer background information on
the designers and their creations.
A unique collection that paper doll fanciers will find especially captivating, Great Fashion Designs of the Forties Paper Dolls will
also appeal to designers, nostalgia buffs, costume historians, and
anyone interested in the timeless fashions of a memorable decade.
