The Fashion Illustration Post

Paul Louis de Giafferri’s pochoir prints which cover a number of historical costumes, including India (~1925).   Some are accurate and probably based on photographs of India at the time, some are a bit whimsical and fanciful and European in execution.  E.g. No 11 in pic 2 looks nothing like Indian fashions of 1925 or antiquity yet wouldn’t be out of place on an Indian runway today. And of course I love some of the blouses in pic 3.
