Erte was the only designer in the 20s who illustrated his own designs. “He envisioned women not only as ultra-chic creatures for whom money was no object but also as…..music hall stars, Assyrian princesses, Egyptian Queens.. Yet under this veil of fantasy, the clothes and accessories Erte created, reveal a sound construction that really works.” Stella Blum, Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Curator.
