  • Short Summary

    Elaborate fashions are modelled - "Batik Francaise" tea gowns and cloaks and "Maison Lewis" hats.

  • Description

    "Batik Francaise" tea gowns and evening cloaks are modelled in an ornate domestic interior.

    Woman twirls and walks around the room to show off her outfits which are elaborately patterned and feature large sleeves and floaty scarves. C/Us on details of the frocks. "Maison Lewis" toques are featured - hats with large feathers and tassels.

    Elaborate patterned fashions in a setting of more patterned fabrics draped over chairs and hanging from walls. Nice for illustrating the opulence and glamour of the early 1920s. One of the models (possibly her friend too) also appears in "Pyjama Peeps" - possibly shot at the same time.
