Exclusive Modes From Paris and Berlin. & .
A most elaborate and comprehensive display of exquisitely
hoantifnl wearing arjmrel from the leadinjr European Modistes. For the
Horse Show, that extreme fashion event, we have made extraordinary prepa
rations and we have not only excelled all similar displays elsewhere, but we
have also greatly surpassed all our own previous magnificent attainments.
THE STOCK IS BRILLIANT WITH BEAUTY AND CONSPICUOUS FOR ITS REASONABLE PRICES.
Our new imported wraps and costumes are from the most noted designers of Paris
and Berlin, included among them being Paquin, Callot, Ignace, Raudnitz, Gerrson,
Bassier, Masson, Templier, Bonnaire, Storch, Artus & Pollard, Doucet, Manuheimer and many others, and.
as there is only one garment of each style in the entire immense stock, you are assured of exclusiveness.
In elegance, in harmonious blending of colors, in style, quality and in variety these garments are without su
periors in this country.
The materials employed are imported laces, spangled nets, crepe meteors, fine broadcloths, panne vel
vets, white doeskin, crepe de Chines, etc., all in a bewildering variety of styles and designs.
