Fashion design started in the 19th century with Charles Frederick Worth. He was the first to create and make use of the principles of design and fashion which could be called haute couture or high fashion.
Fashion is a well-known design or convention, particularly in clothing, accessories, footwear, body piercing, make-up or furniture. Fashion is a unique and usually orientation towards which a person dresses. It is the predominant behaving style and the latest creations of fabric designers.
Throughout the 20th century all high fashion originated in Paris and to an inferior extent London.
Changes in costume often happened in times of economic or social change, as happened in ancient Rome and the medieval Caliphate, but then a long span without major changes would follow.
“The woman is the most perfect doll that i have dressed with delight and admiration.”
— Karl Lagerfeld
