1929: Ethnic Prints for Spring

Ethnic prints are popular this spring, so it seems very appropriate to post this striking image from Fashion Service Woman's Institute Magazine and March 1929. It is a beautiful advertisement that features the "Indu-Chi" series of fabrics, "Parisian in design, latin in feeling, and inspired by the vigorous, joyful, decorative embroideries of Hungarian peasant festival costumes." Simply gorgeous.


  1. If only we could see the full dress, and perhaps know the price of those beautiful silk crepe fabrics!

    1. Agreed! For the silk crepe fabrics, I guess we could just "ask to seem them at your local dealer"! ;) Sigh - if only!
