The photographs of Edward Steichen are characterized by a bold sense of visual drama as well as a newly independent feminine ideal. Both elements are present in this image of models Ruth Covell and Marion Morehouse that appeared in the October 15, 1932, Vogue. Morehouse, a Steichen favorite, soon married poet e.e. cummings; Covell wears an ensemble by Madeleine Vionnet of a long white crepe dress with a dark sash.

The current obsession with footwear is hardly new. Proof? This Edward Steichen photograph, which appeared in the June 1, 1934, Vogue. A model extends her legs upward, showing off a timeless pair of strappy flat sandals—a popular style to this day.

Here, George Hoyningen-Huené experiments with the negative-positive style of photography popularized by Man Ray. His subject is a model with her back to the camera, who wears a Sacrez evening corset by Marguerite. The eerie, surreal image appeared in the April 15, 1930, Vogue.

Mulberry Crepe Dress
C.1937-43 A really wonderful mulberry silk and wool crepe dress with a great sleeve application. The short sleeves are set-in except at the top of the seam line where the sleeve is cartage pleated and applied to the shoulder. The bodice reflects the shoulder application with a tightly gathered center front medallion. The fabric is pleated together as in cartage pleating and then fixed into place. The fabric is allowed to run away freely from the medallion creating a circle of freely floating pleats. The skirt and bodice meet at the natural waistline and the dress closes at the left side seam with a zipper. This dress was used as the original owners wedding dress in 1945. there is also a center back neck zipper.

Silk Velvet Dress
C.1930S a very yummy claret colored silk velvet dress with beaded inset of ivory silk chiffon. The inset of silk chiffon is v-shaped at the neckline and is weighted to create a cowl-like drape. The short sleeves have a slight hip at the shoulder were they are tightly gathered into the shoulder seam. A matching velvet self-belt tie snaps around the waist. There are two small spots on the inset front and some slight crushing to the velvet on the skirt in several spots.
