It is impossible to think of modern design without honoring Paul Poiret. One of the first use draped fashion, capitalize on his own name, and use live models, he essentially created the modern fashion industry. The offered 1924 photograph shows the iconic designer posing with his models and looking proud of his creations. This is an extremely rare photograph of one of the most important designers of all time! Issued by Wide World Photos and stamped on the back, this is one of his greatest images ever taken and offered here for the first time ever. The photo has some light pinholes from editorial use but it looks great otherwise.
