Word Chimes: Art / Fashion

Beauty Shop, New York 1939
"An artificial smile 
of premade beauty...

There will always be 
a shopping window
before your hungry 
consumer eyes.."









Shop Sign: Shoe (version A), New York 1939






"Big, enormous signs....
Leaders of your way...
Marching your march...

While carrying them 
on your tiny shoulders..."










Dior Black Suit, Paris 1950






"Woman in style...Man in mentality...

Play the role of your own personality"
