Shoe Textiles

A small series of textile is donated with shoe sketches. The textile contained in the series includes leather pieces, fabric pieces, braded strips in various textiles, fur pieces, bronze charms, Swarovski crystals, silk cubes and feather samples housed in 70 Polaroid sleeves in eight folders.

The materials are gradually collected by Arsho Baghsarian in her work. Some of these are provided by textile suppliers with detailed color codes and item numbers. Others are collected by Arsho herself. It is surprising to find that textiles with such a variety can be applied on shoe design.

Glove samples, undated

This series consist of actual glove samples, mostly leather but a few non-leather. Some are displayed with their original packaging as they arrived into the collection. They are separated into folders by gloves lengths : short, mid, and long. Gloves may be manufactured in Paris or the Philippines, as shown by the inside stamps and may or may not include tags. Glove conditions range from brand new, lightly worn to very used.

Women's suits, coats, sportswear, and swimwear sketches and correspondence, 1947-1950

Unsigned sketches of women's suits, coats, sportswear, and swimwear from the late 1940s, in pencil and/or watercolor. In several cases, it appears that signatures may have been purposely cut off of the sketches. Some sketches are grouped with letters from from Lea Thompson to Adam Gimbel, dated in 1947.

Correspondence from Gimbel-Saks Purchasing S.A. in Paris to Ms. Gimbel. The letters are dated 1950 and include reports detailing the colors, materials, and silhouettes employed by major French fashion designers. These letters originally accompanied sketches of French designs and many of the unsigned sketches bear numbers that, in some cases, correspond to the sketch numbers cited in the letters.

Albert Goudy and Julio Laffitte sketches

Sketches by Albert Goudy and Julio Laffitte. Goudy's sketches of 1960s women's wear are in ink and watercolor. A few have fabric swatches attached. Laffitte's sketches of women's sportswear, eveningwear, and suits are in pencil and watercolor; many are dated 1947.

Scrapbooks, 1938-1970

Scrapbooks mostly contain newspaper clippings of reviews of Mainbocher's designs for women's clothing, corsetry, uniforms, theatrical costumes and wedding gowns. Clippings from clipping services document Mainbocher's role as designer for such notable women as Wallis Simpson, Mary Martin, and C.Z. Guest. Also included are magazines, photographs, Playbills and correspondence between Mainbocher and prominent figures like Nancy White, editor of Harper's Bazaar from 1958 to 1971. The books generally proceed from newspaper articles on a particular collection to magazine coverage. The only qualification for an article to appear in the scrapbook is the word "Mainbocher."

Reproductions are ledger size (11 x 17 inches) and were duplicated from the originals as genuinely as possible. All page numbers are taken from the originals unless otherwise noted. Most page numbers are followed by a lowercase letter to indicate that it required more than one photocopy to capture the complete contents of the original page. All loose materials found in scrapbooks (excluding newspaper articles) were put in acid-free folders. Folders are placed within the leaves as they were originally assembled.

Press, 1932-1979

This series is comprised of five folders, all containing press clippings regarding milliner Robert Dudley's hat collections dating between 1932-1979.
