Historical Designer Inquiry

I found these amazing designs but no one knows who this was by or what was the source.


I am interested on making one of these but I wish I know who it was by or where it came from for reference info for masquerade. I don't personally know people that are historical fashion buffs so maybe one of you may know it.

They look to be from the early 1900s most likely from one of many different French Clothers of the time.

The Drummer Girl is a classic Neo design that was all the rage in the first half of the 1900s. The Indian Maiden looks like to be something that was wore by a French Burlesque circ WWI.

These design were found allot during the time period of 1900-1930 and were called by various names I know then a Neo-French Revolution Style.

If you can find an artist name on any of the prints I might be able to get you more information. Most artist of that time period signed the prints in the lower right hand corner

Thanks, I will go and research in that area. There is a signature on each image but hard to understand or if I search online different variations of its spelling I don't get any definitive results. But anyways at least I got a time period to go by.

I'm confused. Which one is the Indian Madien? The lines look like Pigeon Breast which means as early as 1897 and where most poplular in 1900 -1909. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1900s_in_fashionThe signature looks like CLEO and the bottom looks like it says Reproduction interdite (reproduction prohibited). Everyone who mentions this sites Isis Wardrobe as there source. Saving and enlarging the prints do not make them easier to read. I'm sorry I can be more help.
Women and cats will do as they please. Men and dogs had better get used to it.
