The series finale of Mad Men that aired on AMC on May 17 roughly coincided with NYPL's digitization of over one-thousand fashion illustrations produced in the 1950s and '60s by New York City-based firm Creators Studios. ("Not yesterday's but tomorrow's fashions today" was the company's tagline.) Perhaps we've just had Mad Men on the brain lately, but if you see traces of the show's female protagonists in these ready-to-wear design drawings you are not alone:
