Traphagen Highlights

By the end of May 1950, June successfully completed all requirements for graduation from Traphagen School of Fashion.

As we near the 61st anniversary of June’s graduation, this entry celebrates her work with a small selection of some of her finest fashion illustrations from her time at Traphagen.  Many of these are previously unpublished, a few are being reposted with better image quality, and a couple are simply favorites that we felt like reposting because they’re so good!

(For Wednesday – Happy Graduation!)

  1. Classic. I think a calender with these images would sell.

  2. LOVE this collection! The drawing with the fur samples was a Traphagen class assignment! Brought back many a wonderful memory of the required curriculum they had. We studied more than Fashion.
    We had live art drawing, lettering, perspective drawing, lettering,
    fashion/fabric painting and History of Costume.
