Rare scarf designed by Lester Gaba, the creator of Cynthia the mannequin. Gaba had a really interesting life. Among other things, he was a sculptor and also worked creating jewelry at Coro.  This scarf is titled Hall of Fame and include 30 notables I have listed in a screen shot. This is up for bids tonight in my eBay store #lestergaba #vintagescarf #scarfcollector #40sscarf #40sstyle #40sfashion #1940s #1940sfashion #coro #corolestergaba #lestergabacoro #corodesigner#
“Everybody’s asking me- who’s that bunch of personality? I’m presenting you right now- baby, take a bow!” Vintage Shirley Temple collectibles are nothing short of amazing. Created during some of the darkest- and poorest- times of the Great Depression, people still purchased frivolous items like these figural soaps to make their children happy.  Released as a pair and as a single offering and sculpted by Lester Gaba for Kerk Guild Inc., these Shirleys were part of a wide line of movie and comic character soap figures released in the mid and late 1930s. #shirleytemple #kerkguild #soap #vintagetoys #vintagecollectibles #lestergaba #greatdepression #moviecollectibles #movies #standupandcheer #babytakeabow #1930s #30s

Denne damen - Cynthia - var et av de mest ettertraktede ansiktene og den gjeveste å bli sett med i New Yorks mote- og sosietetsverden på 30-tallet. Hun fikk sponsa smykker av Tiffanys og egne hatter ble designet til henne, hun hadde sin egen spalte og radioshow. Hun var til og med i bryllupet til Wallis Simpson og hertugen av Windsor. Ja, og så fikk hun en flere siders fotoserie i LIFE Magazine. Det er helt absurd, for hun var faktisk en utstillingsdukke og støpt i gips! Men, den ensformige substansen, 
manglende evne til å si noe fornuftig og det totale fraværet av kognitive funksjoner hindret henne ikke i å oppnå influencer-status. (Utstillingsdukkemakeren som skapte henne, het Lester Gaba, og Cynthia var en Gaba Girls.) Mer på #kariannegmkinno #cynthia #influencer #lestergaba #gabagirl #utstillingsdukke

#lestergaba napravio je 1932. prvu lutku koja je odgovarala merama i izgledu ženskog tela, ne bi li naravno posmatračima izloga komadi odeće delovali privlačnije. Prva lutka ovakve vrste zvala se #cynthia, imala je nokte, trepavice, pa čak i poneku jedva vidljivu boru. A najneverovatnije (mada je adekvatniji izraz: najbizarnije) od svega bilo je to, što je ova lutka doživela svetsku popularnost, te je čak bila pozvana i na venčanje Edvarda VIII! Te se našla i na naslovnici magazina #life. Čitavu priču pročitajte na elle.rs

🔶Лестер Габа🔶

Создатель эффектной блондинки, которую можно увидеть на многих фотографиях конца 30-х годов прошлого века, завораживает взглядом бесстрастных грустных глаз и ледяной красотой. И ничего удивительного - ведь это... кукла! Кукла, которая сводила с ума мужчин и заставляла подражать женщин.
Скульптор Лестер Габа в 1936 году получил заказ на разработку манекена для универмага Saks Fifth Avenue. Габа создал "Синтию" - пластиковый манекен в сидячей позе. Скульптор он был одаренный, и манекен получил удивительное сходство с живой женщиной. 
Манекен моментально завоевал Нью-Йорк и Америку, а потом и Европу под именем Gaba-girls (Девушка Габы). Cartier и Tiffany дарили ей ювелирные украшения, она появилась на обложке Life Magazine, лучшие модельеры шили для нее наряды, специально для нее бронировали лучшие места в Метрополитен-опера. Настоящее признание настигло Синтию в 1937-ом году, когда журнал "Life" опубликовал подборку ее фотографий. Она даже стала ведущей ток-шоу на радио и сыграла в кино. Вершиной же светской карьеры Синтии стало приглашение на свадьбу Уоллис Симпсон и отказавшегося от престола Эдварда VIII.🔸Некоторые материалы взяты из интернетисточников‼️ #историиинтересныхлюдей #биографиивеликих #биографиизнаменитых #historyofbrands #history_of_brands #biography#лестергаба#lestergaba

In the 1930's, artist and visual merchandising pioneer, Lester Gaba, created and introduced a more realistic mannequin. He called his mannequin 'Cynthia'. Cynthia and Gaba were often seen out and about in New York, attending nightclubs and social events together. As Cynthia's fame grew, Cartier and Tiffany sent her jewellery, Lilly Daché designed hats for her, and couturiers sent her their latest fashions. Gossip columnists wrote about Cynthia as if she were a real socialite; she had her own radio show and newspaper column; and she appeared on the cover of 'Life' magazine. #windowdisplays #visualmerchandising #lestergaba #lifemagazine #cartier #tiffany #mannequin #lillydaché
