Fashion Look Book from 1936-37

I had always wanted to 'do' something with this stunning collection of drawings by my father when he worked at a studio in Bond Street in around 1936-37. The originals will eventually be mounted and framed and then displayed on a suitable wall, but now I hope the digital versions can be appreciated by others.

The dresses were draped over a tailor's dummy, and then my father had to draw in the models wearing them. He used a mix of pen and ink, and brush, and the results were used for fashion catalogues of the day.

I would love to find any remaining examples of the catalogues, or indeed any information relating to the designers.

The link above takes you to a slide show, but downloadable versions can be found on my Flickr photostream.
