Transcript of History of Fashion Design

Before Design Industry History Of Design Founders of
Modern design Charles Frederick Worth was considered to be "The founder of Haute Couture" as he was the first official fashion designer, after he began sewing his own label into clothes. Worth was also the first person to create clothes that were not made for an individual client, and was the first to showcase his garments on live models. Jacques Doucet established
the biggest Haute Couture
house in Paris and is also
credited in the creation of the
tailored women's suits. Paul Poiret was the rebel of the four main
founders of design, he rejected the use of
petticoats and corsets in his garments,
he created harem pants, the lampshade tunic, and
used influences from other civilizations to create
his garments. Madeleine Vionnet introduced the design
industry to a new technique in dressmaking
called the bias cut. The innovative technique
gave clothes a type of stretch that
allowed for wrapping and took out
planes in clothes surface. This
technique is still studied,
learned, and copied. Haute Couture History Of Design Evolution of Design Haute Couture is the production
of clothes for a specific individual.
Garments are usually made from
luxurious fabrics and embellishments
and the production of the garment
is usually done by hand. Couture houses operate on a seasonal basis, producing clothes as needed for seasons and for the upcoming events of the elite. This lead to the showing of collections every season to the public so that clients would be abreast on current styles. Designers Mass
Market Ready-to-wear Couture fashion ended its reign in the 1950's
due to the expense of production. Couture fashion
is still seen today in different designers collections,
but it is not as prevalent or necessary as it once was. Evolution of Design Evolution of Design Established by a couture model who wanted to
break from the normal routine, ready-to-wear
are pieces that are produced on a bigger scale
than couture, but are limited in numbers in
order to keep exclusivity. Although the price for ready-to-wear clothes are cheaper than coutures, customers do not have to give up the quality of the clothes, as rtw is selective about the fabrics and finishings that are put onto clothes. Collection are shown twice a year during Fashion Week in various countries and cities in the world. Established soon after RTW, mass market
fashion has become the dominating force in
the fashion industry. Mass market garments are produced in bulk
and is sold in more general areas than RTW
and couture pieces are. The fabric and
finishings are not as luxurious or as expensive
as its predeccesors, making the purchase price
inexpensive as well. Many designers have partnered with mass market
design teams in order to create inexpensive lines
that can be sold to the general public at a
reasonable price. During the reign of King Louis VXI, Paris enjoyed one of its most memorable time periods for fashion. Marie Antoinette, and the Royal Court served
as the trendsetters of the time. Women wore corsets and overly extravegant dresses, while men wore shoes with a slight heel, and powdered wigs making themselves look flamboyant. Designers do more than sketch out a idea for a garment.
They also oversee the production of a cardboard pattern, production if the garment itslef,, and key elements for the garment.
Designer also plans fashion show, from the models to the order of garment appereance. Designer can also set the price of their garments. Important People in Design Pattern Makers Patternmakers job is to creare a template of the design to assist in the production of the garment.
Pattern making ranges from ameatuer to proffesional. Those who seek a career often go to school and intern.
The career of a patternmaker seems to be mathematical, cold, and aloof to the outside world, but is one of the most vital pieces in the design process. Important People in Design Seamstress Today's seamstress is not charged with creating full lines by hand. But many have their own shops for alterations.
Some seamstresses do still work for clothing lines and assist in the production of garments.
