FASHION DRAWING OF THE LATE 1930s
“Jet Trim“, drawing with pen and watercolour made by Ruth Muller. Signed bottom right. Size (paper): approx. 38 x 25,5 cm.
The drawing is from a series of fashion designs from the years 1937-1938. Ruth Muller was probably a designer for one of the major New York department stores.
The fashionable silhouette in the late 1930s had evolved into a slender, elongated torso with widening shoulders and a neat head with softly waved short hair. Though the lines were simple, the overall effect was one of complete sinuous femininity with a natural waist and skirts flaring out slightly at the ankle. The war was approaching, clever design enabled efficient use of fabric.
