Pair of fashion drawings by Ethel Rabin

Save rotate

Denver, CO USA
Description from user:

I have a collection of antique hand drawn fashion sketches from a 1920's NYC fashion designer, Ethel Rabin. These drawings were created for the purpose of sending to fabric manufacturers so they knew what to create. The photos are all on a semi-thick cardboard, 9x12 with her name written on each drawing.

I acquired these from a family friend who didn't know what to do with the drawings. Unknown where they came from before this.
