Romain de Tirtoff (1892 1990) was a Russian-born French artist and designer known by the pseudonym Ert, the French pronunciation of his initials, R.T. He was a diversely-talented artist and designer who flourished in an array of fields, including fashion, jewelry, graphic arts, costume and set design, and interior dcor. In the 1920s he was the only top Paris designer who illustrated his own costumes, most of the illustrations appearing in Harper's Bazar. The illustrations reproduced here depict everything from ball gowns to swimwear - everything a woman needed to be fashionable in early 20th-century.
