Fashion plate, from La Mode Illustreé

This hand-coloured fashion plate is from La Mode Illustreé, a fashion magazine published in Paris. Dating from 1887, the plate illustrates two day dresses with hats. It is signed, 'I. Desgrange'.

The waistline of these dresses is tight fitting and extends to a long point. The bustle is quite exaggerated, tending to arch up and out from the back. The skirts are draped and trimmed at the back into elaborate bouffants.

Isabelle Desgrange (née Toudouze) was the daughter of Adèle Anaïs Toudouze, one of the most prolific and popular fashion plate artists of the mid-nineteenth century. Isabelle also produced plates for Le Follet, Le Monde Elégant and The Queen.
