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.

Yes, this is an amazing resource, for the scarves, fashions and as examples of designers from that year. I haven't found any mention of additional years, so don't know if those exist (maybe I should ask?),
