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.
