Our fact

In 1855 English designer, Charles Frederick Worth established the first haute couture house in Paris. This was the first place where people could go and purchase designer clothes. He was previously a sales assistant at a famous Paris shop that sold fabrics. Before ready to wear clothes, you used to go to the fabric store and the sales assistants would help you select the fabrics and then they’d send the material to dressmakers and they would measure you up and make clothes for you. It’s a little different today with ready-to-wear clothes!
