These illustrations are of “pochoir”, a French hand-stenciling technique issued in luxury fashion publications. This is great piece of French publication history, given the significance of this technique used by artists in the 1910s and 1920s.

Ari Seth Cohen, a previous presenter of the 2011 and 2012 Fashion Now & Then Conferences, authored Advanced Style: Older and Wiser.
