Next to the model CAPRICE - on the first photograph - there is an unnamed model probably from the same collection of the ATHENIEN (brocade floral pattern), about which they said:

The last word in fashion is the black satin evening slipper with pointed vamp embroidered in frail eighteenth century flowers. It is worn with rose beige chiffon stockings.  
Anne Rittenhouse
The Mail | May 17, 1924

No other photographs and/or drawings are available, but the model was featured on the well known 2-page spread in Vogue back in 1956.
