Art HistoryHaute couture, fashion’s art of supreme technical mastery, began in Paris in the mid-nineteenth century. Certain designers rose to the status of artist-celebrities, sought after for their signature styles. Among the most famous was Charles Frederick Worth (French, b. England, 1825–1895), whose Paris shop was a source of extravagant evening ensembles.
