Original hand-coloured pochoir by Fernand Simeon (1884-1928) for the Gazette du Bon Ton (Journal of Good Style), published in Paris in 1914 to illustrate the latest superior fashion worn in an appropriate situation.

Pochoir, the French word for stencil, was the labour-intensive method of illustration by cutting separate stencils for each successive application of watercolour. The finest illustrators of the day showed fashions by prominent French designers in Gazette du Bon Ton, published by Lucien Vogel in Paris between 1912 and 1925.
