A Harvey Nichols' brochure illustrating the fashion trends of the 1936/37 season. The brochure works as both a magazine and a catalogue for the Knightsbridge department store. It informs the reader of the Paris fashions - 'Paris wants us to wear... slit skirts, flowers in our ears,... Egyptian jewelry, boleros,... scallops!'

The magazine announces the opening of a new country clothes department.
