Transcript of Paul Poiret
of Design Poiret was becoming increasingly popular with the public. In his autobiography, Poiret stated, "People have been good enough to say that I have exercised a powerful influence over my age, and that I have inspired the whole of my generation. I dare not make the pretension that this is true … ". An important example of Poiret's artistic influence was in his work with Paul Iribe. With Iribe creating the drawings that pictured Poiret's dresses, they produced a publication for the elite society titled Les Robes de Paul Poiret, racontees par Paul Iribe. Poiret produced a similar album with artist Georges Lepape two years later titled Les choses de Paul Poiret vues par Georges Lepape. Both publications were tremendously successful.

Paul Poiret and Interior Decoration Paul Poiret Couture House The interiors of the house relied for their effect on brightly coloured decorations of trees and flowers painted on the walls, with low furniture and shimmering or boldly patterned fabrics. Poiret made no distinction between furnishing and clothing textiles, and this crossover between women's high fashion and interior design is typical of Art Deco. The style was conceived in response to the challenge of rational, functional, Auto-German design perceived as masculine and was identified with frivolity, irrationality and 'mere' decoration, regarded as feminine, a gender stereotype inherent in Western culture.
