Tres Parisien : La Mode, Le Chic, L'Elegance

I introduce you to one of my treasures. I have two sets of these Tres Parisiens, vol 1 and vol 2 with loads of plates. These sets of tissue paper pochoirs ( the process involves hand place color, stencils and lithograhs) date from 1920 - 1936, so I presume these are from the first year. Some are credited to a specific couture house, others are given a name. Some of the cations are actually about the clothing, others tell a story. Or at least that is what my French friend tells me. My French is nonexistent.

Enjoy the pretty.

I am researching the designer Jeanne Margaine-Lacroix. Are there any mentions/reproductions of her work in
your Tres Parisien volumes? I know this title featured her work in some of their editions.....
