designed by McPherson (Mrs)1928

Desgn for a dress silk, inspired by French decorative design. Note the use of the bright colours of green, orange, white, pink and yellow, on a black ground. The stylized flowers and intentionally naïve mark-making of this pattern are drawn in the spirit of the French couturier Paul Poiret's Atelier Martin.
