By Amy De La Haye & Valerie D. Mendes
Legendary British-born designer Charles Frederick Worth (1825-1895), with enormous talent for design and promotion, built his fashion house into an empire during the last quarter of the 19th century-the first business of its kind with global reach. Profusely illustrated, this astonishing book explores Worth's success in the realm of haute couture after 1890 while also giving insights into the daily routine at Maison Worth in Paris.
Lady Sybil on Downton Abbey wore a pair of Worth designed harem pants.
