Journal des Dames et des Modes: Three important new Paris fashion magazines began publishing in 1912 and Barbier was made the principal illustrator for two of them. One of them, the Journal des Dames et des Modes lasted only two years until 1914 but served to establish Barbier as a designer, since the illustrations in the magazine were not copies of couturier models but designs Barbier did himself. This allowed Barbier to exert an influence on fashion without actually running a couturier house himself.

The Journal des Dames et des Modes: was a luxury magazine for an exclusive clientele; only 1279 copies of each issue were printed. The magazine appeared three times a month The text part of each number filled eight pages and consisted of belles lettres - aphorisms, fashionable poetry, fashion notes and the like - written by pillars of tout Paris...Anatole France, Jean Cocteau and the Comtesse de Noailles. In addition, each issue was accompanied by from one to five unbound colored fashion plates...the yearly subscription price was 100 francs in France, 120 francs elsewhere.
