This is an original watercolor 1980s fashion design from a French designer, Drusy Passerini. Drusy was a “stylist modeliste” who designed for sportswear couturieres in Paris in the early 1980’s. Her designs were signed, named or numbered and all Drusy designs were registered in Parisian fashion registries. Often there were notations specifying details. The sportswear designs were created and sold at the time in the fashion district in Paris in such houses as Patrick Viane or Saint-Clair. This design is for summer sportswear. The design is stylish and chic.
The watercolor and ink drawing is done on fine white onion skin with original fastening to heavier white drawing paper. Both sheets are carefully affixed with small staples in the corners. It was purchased as such from a Parisian collector who specializes in original fashion drawings. The drawing measures 8 ¼ x 11 ¾ inches.
