About the fashion illustrations on offer at The White Cabinet:
From the 1940’s to the 1960’s Hilda Glasgow was one of the top fashion illustrators in the industry. She was also my mother. As a woman ahead of her time, born in 1913, graduating from Pratt Institute in NYC in 1933, she illustrated the latest mid 20th century fashions for magazines such as Vogue and a variety of high end department stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue and Best & Co. Her original pen and ink drawings are now being offered as several products including gicleé reproductions.
I was lucky enough to receive a set of notecards from Liz Glasgow, daughter of Hilda, the illustrator. I was sent the 1950s fashion notecards. There are 8 lovely cards in the set, selling for a mere $24! What mom or woman wouldn’t want this as a gift? I think they’d look wonderful framed near a vanity or dressing room! The paper is of a nice texture and good weight, and the print is clear. You can check out the specific set of notecards that I received. I received the cards encased in a heavy plastic box, wrapped with a piece of ribbon held together with a lovely button/pin with ‘Cyd’ on it. Definitely, the packaging is so great that you could just give it to your gift recipient without further wrapping!Here are a few pictures of the illustrations on the cards:

You’ll have a chance to win the 1950s set of cards that I also received, directly from The White Cabinet, during the I Love My Mommy Giveaway Hop starting May 5th! Thank you Liz for sending me the cards and for offering a set for giveaway!
So, which of the ladies is your favourite?
