Description
A bound volume of 276 mimeographed fashion drawings created by Edyth Sparag Studios between the late 1930s and early 1950s.

The designs, which include dresses, suits, and evening gowns, provide visual documentation of New York fashion design during the mid-twentieth century. The drawings illustrate the types of fashion accessories and hair styles common to this period as well.
