Asher Fabrics: Couture Fashion, 1958
Ascher, London has posted five couture fashion portfolios from 1958. These scrapbooks with photos showcase designs using the original textiles by Zika Ascher, including mohair fabrics that Ascher was developing. It is wonderful to look through each collection. They captures the couture look from that year so well.
Also on this site is a gorgeous gallery of Ascher Scarves from the mid-1940's that were designed by known artists of the day.
