Travel Show and Fashion Pageant Program, S.S. Washington, 5 June 1933

One of our most unusual programs - combination Travel Show and Fashion Pageant held onboad the S.S. Washington of the United States Lines. While the program contained no photographs, it did list all the latest summer fashions of 1933. Rare Six-part Fold-Out Brochure that covered a Travel Show and Fashion Pageant on board the new S.S. Washington of the United States Lines. Also included information on the Washington including a condensed guide to public spaces on each deck.

There are four essentials in dressmaking: choice of material, choice of color, design, and decoration. For the best success of dressmaking, consideration must be given to the type of person for whom the dress is to be made. A thin person may wear puffed sleeves, capes and ruffles. A stout person should wear long lines, may wear striped materials, but refrain from plaids, checks or horizontal stripes. A short-waisted person should avoid wide belt-lines. A person with a long neck should refrain from wearing V-cut neck-lines. Bustle-effects, ruffles or bows are not for the large-hipped person.

Colors have much to do with the making and wearing of dresses. Materials must be considered with a view to the type of wearer; the blonde may wear blue, black, violet, brown, white and pastel shades or clear blue colors. Hazel types may wear green, red, brown, yellow, ivory and black; Titian-haired women look best in greens and yellows. The brunette wears black, navy blue, orange, peach, ivory and rose-beige best. Black-haired women may wear yellow, orange, crimson, ruby red, white and vivid colors. Gray-haired women look well in blue, gray, black, dark red, lavender, ivory and flesh.

Materials are of tremendous importance in dressmaking and their uses specific for day or evening wear, seasonal wear, and specific occasion wear. Silks, chiffons, georgettes, velvets, and printed materials are suitable for evening gowns. In 1933 and 1934 cotton merchants stressed the use of cotton materials for day and evening wear. For daytime wear crepe silks, woolens, linens, cottons, organdies, rayons and celanese materials are appropriate. (Note 1)

America Afloat

HERE’S travel luxury — as Americans know it. The new S. S. WASHINGTON is planned from stem to stern especially for Americans. She’s a sister ship of the magnificent MANHATTAN, and, like the MANHATTAN, she offers on all seven decks the American standard of living in every sumptuous detail.

The WASHINGTON is a huge floating playground, where gracious hospitality in the American manner invites you to enjoy yourself through every minute of the voyage. In the space and quiet comfort of her public rooms, you’ll find the distinctive beauty, the quiet, restful ease, of a Colonial drawing room.

Rates to Suit Your Purse
Like a great and luxurious American hotel, the WASHINGTON and MANHATTAN — largest liners ever built in America, and the fastest cabin liners in the world — offer every comfort, every hospitality— at remarkably low fares!

Little Vacation Cruises
The WASHINGTON and MANHATTAN will make a series of short cruises during the summer — brief, refreshing voyages at a time when recreation is needed most.
