Flowers in Every Style
Fashion demanded floral prints to suit a range of moods and styles. The vividly coloured exoticism of the 1920s gave way in the 1930s to a more restrained feminine ideal - Hollywood glamour, modernism and the ultra-feminine ingénue were all fashionable trends. In the 1940s, nostalgic designs with leaves and flowers were a popular style.
Versatility was a virtue for a studio designer. Although some women designers at the Silver Studio had a signature style, it was those who designed across a variety of styles, or who designed for fashion, children's dress and furnishing textiles who had the most enduring relationship with the Silver Studio.
