Worth, The First Couturier, was born in England in 1825. He worked and had an atelier in Paris, France where he died in 1895. His “art” was worn by many celebrities, foreign aristocracy and royalty. The only royalty of England who did not wear Worth’s dresses was Queen Victoria….hmmm, wonder why!!??
He designed for each client a unique gown, no two dresses were the same.
He also was the first one that introduced daytime dresses which were shortened to the ankle and he created the “Princess dress” , which was not anymore consisting of a bodice and skirt, but was cut in one piece!
