He is considered to be the father of the Haute Couture. He was born in 1825 in Bourne England and lived until 1895 .But he left his mark still on the french fashion ( which ruled at the time) He created the Houte Couture as we know it today . and for example dresses above were design by him. Many of his customers travelled from far away to get his works. ( for example from New York to Paris) . Actually he was so sufficiently fashionable that he had to turn away customers. But this only added his êclat .
He revolutionized the fashion and was first couturier to call himself as artist , not as artisan.
