The Originator was a unique sketchbook of modern fashion trends and ideas. The monthly publication featured authentic designer sketches to illustrate style variations and creative applications for smart designs. Whether a new pocket, a beautiful neckline, or a basic silhouette, the Originator's unique feature was to show its ultimate use in various garments such as blouses, dresses, suits, and coats. During the 1940's and 50's, The Originator Publishing Company also sold an expensive, highly stylized line of sewing patterns similar to Modes Royale.
