From the studio of the world famous theatrical and fashion designer Erte come these fabulous designs and the six sophisticated fashion paper dolls who were made to wear them. Never before has so famous a designer fashioned complete wardrobes for a book of paper dolls.

The gowns, coats, hats and accessories for every season are striking and elegant and come complete with tassels, long trains, fur muffs, capes, sashes, eccentric pockets and other extravagant flourishes - all the well-known trademarks of Erte, rendered in full color according to his specific instructions. Each doll has her own wardrobe, with 43 costumes in all.

Cut out the dolls and all their outfits and you not only have a panorama of costume design of the early 20th century, but a valuable collection of the works of one of the world's foremost designers.
