History

Madame Margé (Mrs. Marguerite Norlin Faupel), a lauded American fashion designer who won the Com Pugh Gold Prize, the Gossard Trophy, and the Mallison Cup, lived from 1878-1950. She made models for fashion houses (Skinner, Cheney, American Woolen Co.) and retail stores (Wannamaker and Marshall Field) and worked as a fashion consultant to Broadway and Hollywood. She operated a Chicago shop and a New York studio on Madison Avenue. Her 1936-1937 Javanese Batik collection--in particular, her famous 'sarong dress'--was shown in NY, Chicago, and Hollywood and contributed to a trend for Asiatic textiles within the fashion industry.
