This Day In History: 1923-02-02
Mayer Brothers in Paterson advertised a special line of “Irene Castle Fashions”. Now you can acquire “frocks and wraps which are exact duplicates of the foreign creations fro the personal wardrobe of the ‘best dressed woman in America.” The models are made, the ad said, of “famous Corticelli Silks”. Each model had the label “Irene Castle Original Model”.
Among the garments featured was the “Wimbledon” a frock with crepe bewitching in its lavalliere effects, at $45.00 and the “Rosamonde” a spade coat with a three-quarter jaunty shoulder cape at $110.00.
