"Many of the posters published in this period bore more than a fleeting resemblance to up-market fashion illustrations. This was not accidental, as many advertisers and companies (including London Underground) were well aware of women's growing interest in active involvement with fashion" (London Transport p. 135). Dupas himself was entrenched in the fashion world, creating memorable illustrations for Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, posters for the British department store Arnold Constable, as well as splendid brochures done for Max Furrier produced by Draeger.
