| ||Charles Frederick
Worth, widely considered the Father of Haute couture, was an
English fashion designer of the 19th century, whose works
were produced in Paris. Born in Bourne, Lincolnshire,
England, Worth made his mark in the French fashion industry.
He worked at several prosperous London drapery shops before
moving to Paris in 1846. He was hired by Gagelin and Opigez,
well-known Parisian drapers. While working in their shop, he
married one of the firm's models, Marie Vernet. Marie would
model shawls and bonnets for prospective customers. Worth
made a few simple dresses for his wife and customers started
to ask for copies of the dresses as well. || |
