The House of Worth is a French house of high fashion that specializes in haute couture, ready-to-wear clothes, and perfumes. The historic house was founded in 1858 by designer Charles Frederick Worth. It continued to operate under his descendents until 1952 but finally closed in 1956. The House of Worth brand was revived in 1999.

One thought on “House of Worth

  1. I’ve always loved Worth fashion. He had such a variety and such creativity in everything he made. Also a very humble man I read somewhere that when he walked down the street if he saw a client he would move to the other side just so he wouldn’t put them in an awkward situation where they felt obligated to talk to him. He felt that he was very below the aristocracy even though he designs for all the best of them.
