The artist Dora Sprinzel created a series of fashion drawings in the 1930s that are a stylish tribute to more acclaimed designers. She left Berlin in the early thirties and arrived in London with her husband Paul, as refugees. Paul had been a film director and so Dora was exposed to the glamorous world of the silver screen. Taking inspiration from this, and with a talent for drawing, she began to forge a career as a fashion illustrator, translating descriptions sent by her sister from the Paris catwalks into a series of elegant images recording the latest styles from visionaries such as Jeanne Lanvin, Marcel Rochas and Elsa Schiaparelli. Dora's pictures were then licensed to clothing manufacturers and retailers around the world, who made up copies with an affordable price tag. Sprinzel's charming drawings represent fashion in one of its most glamorous decades forming a collection that has the utmost vintage appeal.
