Famous Fashion Designers Inspired by Silverware! - 1940 Better Homes and Gardens

Just in time for Christmas, "Community Plate - Leadership in Design Authority" shows us the silverware that inspired Balenciaga, Molyneux, Schiaparelli and Lelong to create these gowns.
Mind you, it was the silverware that came first...but thank goodness these mere dress designers had such inspiration!

BALENCIAGA took his style inspiration for this creation from Coronation* by Community ... the best loved pattern of all!

MOLYNEUX was inspired by the jewel like flower design of the loveliest pattern of the year...the new Milady*byCommunity.

SCHIAPARELLI created this exciting, dramatic gown, inspired by the exciting, deeply carved pattern, Forever*by Community.

LELONG designed this superbly simple gown in honor of the superbly simple pattern... Lady Hamilton* in Community Plate.
