Fashion is all around us. We see it in the streets, in the shop windows, on the runways, and most of all on our favorite stars on the red carpet. We have entire magazines devoted to disseminating the ideals of fashion every month. But where does it come from? Who decides what is trending and hot?
Since the 16th century, Paris has operated as the capital of fashion design. Fashion dolls were sent to London and Rome every year to show the ladies and seamstresses the latest in dress innovations. Today we don’t have to wait to see the latest fashions, they are available with just a few clicks of the computer to find your favorite designer’s latest collection online.
The chic, elegance and classic styles of French fashion have endured for centuries. Today, Paris is the home to several influential fashion designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Chloe, Givenchy, Vuitton, Dior and Yves Saint Laurent. The shape and style of much of the last three decades was crafted and drawn by these individuals.
