The Illustrations of Madeleine Wallis

I occasionally like to look through the online archives of different museums. V&A Online has a good collection of 1920’s fashion illustrations. There is a large body of work from House of Paquin, particularly art from Madeleine Wallis, who was creative director there when Jeanne Paquin retired until 1936. Below are some of my favorite looks from the 1923 and 1924 collection. There are many more in the searchable collections to enjoy, as well.
