Three Fancy Dress Costumes ~ La Mode Illustree
Print by the famous Illustrator Adel Anais Tondouze (1822-1899)
La Mode Illustrée commenced publication in 1860. This is a rare print which was individually collected for its most interesting costume collection. Showing three dress designs, probably mother and her daughters, worn for a fancy dress grand occasion. The portraits are this distinguished Fashion Artist at her very best. Nostalgically, this print reminds us how young ladies can look.
