In fact, Charles was one of the first people to start creating “fashion houses” and telling his customers what kind of clothes were right for them.

 At this time, a number of design houses began hiring artists to create clothing patterns. Patterns were presented to customers, and according to the customer’s interest, orders were sewn under. At this point, the tradition of presenting patterns to customers and sewing them began, instead of the previous system in which complete garments were sewn or used. Took. At the beginning of the twentieth century, the first new fashion developments took place in Paris and from there spread to other parts of the world. New clothing designs were born in Paris before they spread to other parts of the world. In other words, Paris became known as the “Capital of Fashion”. Fashion in this period was introduced as “Haute Couture” and was designed exclusively for special people.
