André Studios Fashion Drawings 1930-1941

The New York Public Library and the Fashion Institute of Technology have teamed up to scan the André Studios fashion drawings collection. André Studios was an NYC-based design studio that created fashions sketches for leading designers like Chanel, Balenciaga, and Schiaparelli, which were then used to sell designs to clothing manufacturers.  The collection includes tons of stunning sketches for women’s fashions, and anyone interested in the 1930s or early 1940s should check it out!

You can also check out the other digital collections of the NYPL, many of which are costume-related, and FIT has put up a number of images from their special collections onto Flickr.

Here’s a few highlights from the André Studios:
