FAMED SHOE DESIGNER WILL DISPLAY HIS OLD AND NEW CREATIONS HERE 
A collection of shoes, including some originally designed by André Perugia for Paul Poiret, famed Paris couturier of the World War I period, will be presented by Perugia in the I.Miller Shoe department at Carson Pirie Scott & Co. tomorrow… 
… the Cape, the current costume love of Paris, is interpreted in a soft wrapped silhouette with a flaring flange like throat. This shoe introduces a new material called Gaslight, sheer as a cobweb but strong as steel.
