Fashion plate, from La Nouvelle Mode

This fashion plate is from La Nouvelle Mode, a weekly fashion journal published in Paris. Dated 1909, the plate is one in a collection of plates from the journal, compiled in a book entitled 'Book of Fashion Plates from La Nouvelle Mode: Fashions 1908-1911'.

The plate is numbered 26 and is signed by the artist 'Drian' who also produced many plates for the French publication 'Gazette du Bon Ton'. The French title of this plate translates as 'Pretty pose for a picture'.

From 1900-10, hats were often large and elaborately trimmed with feathers, flowers and ribbons. Hair was bouffant and arranged off the face and was often worn padded. It could also be worn in Marcel waves - a series of even waves put in the hair with a curling iron invented by the early 20th century French hairdresser, Marcel Grateau.
