|Paul Poiret (20 April 1879, Paris, France – 30 April 1944, Paris) was a French fashion designer. His contributions to twentieth-century fashion have been likened to Picasso's contributions to twentieth-century art.|
Another one of my vintage Fashion icons...... after my recent homage to Fortuny...... I cannot describe how much I adore the work of these designers....the you tube video is in French but I thought that it gave amazing close up images of his work .... plus check out the Essay from the Metropolitan Museum of Art which gives more details of his life.
