TWA Stewardess Paper Dresses

Paper dresses were a thing in the mid-to-late 1960s. At the tail end of the trend, in 1968, TWA had their stewardesses wear internationally themed paper dresses designed by Elisa Daggs as part of an in-flight marketing campaign. Four of those costumes, in unworn condition, will be sold next month by Augusta Auctions, which specializes in clothing and textiles. They are:

The English Wench [est. $600-800]

The French Maid [est. $200-300]

The Roman Toga [est. $400-500]

And The Manhattan Hostess. [$600-800]
