The Euclid Geometric! One side different from the other! Whimsically adorned with diamonds, triangles, lightning zigzags in vivid, effective contrasts! The accepted mode of Paris - perfected by I.Miller - for the fashionable Modernist gowns"

FOOTNOTE
[THREE YEARS LATER]

OF COURSE
In his autobiography, Ferragamo writes, “How else can I explain my sense of design? I do not have to search for styles. When I need new ones I select from those that present themselves to my mind as I select an apple from the laden dish upon my table.” With these words, the creative would appear to deny any source of inspiration, any reference to anything but his own mind.
