Dior sketches at Argosy in Midtown Manhattan

I returned from my trip to New York for the American Historical Association meeting last week, and will have a good number of posts to share with you from that trip.  One of the first things I came across was the antique bookstore, Argosy, in midtown which had a good sized collection of Dior sketches for sale in their window.

According to Argosy:

“We purchased a large collection of Dior, Balmain and I believe some Givenchy  plates from a decorator who was relocating his wealthy (elderly) client to Florida and was therefore down sizing.  The Dior were by far the most exciting. I believe they date from the 70’s and 80’s and were done by various designers who worked for the House of Dior.”

Below are some of the photos of the sketches. Argosy is located at 116 East 59th Street, New York, NY 10022 and can be reached by phone at 212-753-4455, Fax 212-593-4784 or online at http://www.argosybooks.com.

Until Next Time,
