Snoods, Hoods, & Drapery

It's those little details that often set the tone for an outfit. From Pre-War drama to Post-War charm, Monolithic Studios' star Miss Gene Marshall shows her unique style with 1940's fashion details.

It's 1939 and the world is at the brink of war. Intrigue and espionage are in the air. Gene is ready with a dramatic ensemble featuring a hood that falls into draping at the neckline. Matching gauntlet gloves and a black felt tricorne hat complete the femme fatale look. Handbag is from an unknown designer. OOAK suit ensemble is from The Couture Touch. Star Entrance Gene Marshall is from Integrity.

Restaurant dining during the 1940's calls for a tailored, yet elegant and refined look. A rich silk velvet snood with matching gloves accent the beautifully detailed dress from Ashton Drake's "Lunch at the Green Parrot" Violet Waters costume. Snood, gloves, and belt are from The Couture Touch. Cuff bracelet is from Integrity. Fashion Plot Gene Marshall with restyled hair is from Ashton Drake.


Asymmetric styling through drapery was a popular feature in dresses during the 1940's. What better way to soften a tailored, fitted jacket than with a chiffon drape re-purposed from the FAO Schwarz Exclusive "Warmest Wishes" set. Jacket, handbag, and embroidered gloves are all from Ashton Drake. Shoes are from Integrity. Hat is from Mattel's "Publicity Tour". Skirt is from an early Gene convention suit ensemble.
