1920s Tres Parisien Magazine

Wow, it’s like I fell into a wormhole that was directed away from this blog filled work and travel. I worked on a few new musicals. One large musical called EMPIRE based on the building of the Empire State Building. It’s sweet. Research for another musical, ANASTASIA that just recently opened. I spent more time in New York this winter working on a musical called NERDS set in the 1970-1990s that wound up being abandoned by producers. Then I had some post show blues. Luckily, I had a trip to England planed with my family where I did some research at the Fashion Museum, in Bath. But I have fallen out of the habit and I’m trying to get this blog back on track.

1920s Paris had a fashion magazine called Tres Parisien. It's lovely and one of my favorites that I have newly collected into my research archives.

I love doing research and one of my favorite things is being able to touch the pages of older works. Here’s a video of the velum of the Tres Parisien pages.

Listen to the page. I love it. Uploaded by Leslie Malitz on 2016-06-04.

Here are a few wonderful images from the Tres Parisien publication in the 1920s.

Tres Parisien continued on into the 1930s before it was discontinued. They also branched out into a publication that was dedicated to hats in the late 1920s. I look forward to blogging regularly again and sharing some of those with you.
