Overview
Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald the "Lost Generation" illustrations by John Held, Jr. the "It" girl Lucky Lindy Louis Brooks prosperity, seemingly endless, and the inevitable crash. The twenties loom large in the American imagination as a decade unto itself, a brief span of years, but with a style all its own.
In this paper doll collection, noted fashion illustrator Tom Tierney brings back the style that set the twenties apart, at least in terms of haute couture. Here are the fashions that gave the decade its distinctive chic and, in the process, revolutionized women's wear. Gone is the elaborate corsetry of the Edwardian age, waistlines are lower, hemlines are higher and costume jewelry is de rigueur. Thirty meticulously re-created costumes and two dolls (15 costumes per doll) present the voguish looks established by such haute couture legends as Coco Chanel, Jean Patou, Madeleine Vionnet, Paul Poiret, Madame Paquin, Worth, Lelong, and 11 others. Paper doll collectors, costume fanciers, and fashion historians will appreciate this delightful collection of artfully rendered paper dolls and costumes."
