The Journal des Dames et Des Modes

Fashion Plate History

The Journal des Dames et des Modes was founded by Tom Antongini, secretary, friend and biographer of poet, connoisseur and collector, Gabriele D'Annunzio (1863-1938) whom he followed into Parisien exile from Italy in 1910. Designed for lovers of rare editions, the Journal aimed to appeal to an audience of connoisseurs and aesthetes, and to be a reflection of the intellectual and cultural atmosphere of Paris, and a record of Parisien culture and fashion at the time. It sought to distinguish itself from already existing periodicals with its rich and vivid coloured plates achieved through the pochoir printing process in which up to thirty colour screens or stencils are used to insert colours into the delicate linear designs of the copper plate engravings.

A collection of 186 Costumes Parisien fashion plates were created for the Journal des Dames et des Modes by leading commercial artists of the day - George Barbier, Leon Bakst, Pierre Legrain, Etienne Drian, Victor Lheur, Gerda Wegener, J. van Brock, Armand Vallee and others.

More information about The Journal des Dames et Des Modes can be found at The Powerhouse Museum of Sydney, Australia. Below is an example of Fashion Plate Art available on eBay.

A Tribute To Joe Tai

(October 31, 1972 ---- September 17, 2010)

" . . . I have to inform you that Joe lost the battle with liver cancer and passed away last month, now he is wrapped by angel's wings and in a better place now.

Bye, my friend, you are always in my heart . . ."

Joe Tai was among the first doll artists to be displayed on The Fashion Plate. This doll friend was special in that he broke ground with his art and craft. Joe Tai was a doll artist, doll shoe maker, and all round good person. What he was able to accomplish in ten years is more than some people yearn to achieve in a lifetime.

Between 2007 and 2010, he and his company sold more than 35,000 pairs of doll shoes, mostly through eBay. May his art continue to inspire, and his legend live on.

I'm honored you lensrolled my lens about Second Life® Fashion. I'm a fan of your work with doll lenses. Creating avatars in virtual reality really is the same as playing with dolls. :) 5* (Lensrolled you back.)

Wow - these are really pretty. Having worn a hat seriously for the first time this summer in Rome (where a hat is no luxury, but a necessity), I looked at the ones here. I think the design does scream 'dolls', but still - they're cute. Very cute.
