For fashion week some styles pour l’homme circa 1919. From the beautifully illustrated French magazine La guirlande : album mensuel d’art et de littératur (1919) which was produced in a limited edition of 800. The copy belonging to the Libraries was a gift of “the Misses Hewitt.”
Sarah and Eleanor Hewitt opened a gallery in New York City on the fourth floor of the Cooper Union, the free school for adults founded by their grandfather, Peter Cooper, in 1897 . Their gallery has since become the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, Smithsonian Institution, a national center for the study and appreciation of art and design.
