Woman in a Fur-Trimmed Beige Coat by Lucien Lelong: Design for the Cover of Voici La Mode Magazine

Henry WECLAWOWICZ, called WECLA

Biography

Although he seems to have been a gifted and prolific draughtsman – his work is found in several French fashion magazines, particularly in the 1930s – very little biographical information exists for Henry Weclawowicz, who signed his work as ‘Wecla’ throughout his career. In addition to several designs for the covers of the magazine Voici La Mode, Wecla also produced drawings for illustrations or advertisements for other popular fashion magazines, including Femina, Les Modes, and Modes et Travaux.
