English-born Charles Frederick Worth dominated Parisian fashion during the latter half of the 19th century. His use of lavish fabrics & trimmings, as well as impeccable fit, earned him the moniker "the father of haute couture." Charles died in 1895, but sons Gaston-Lucien and Jean-Philippe took over the house. The House of Worth ended in its run in 1952 when grandson Jean-Charles retired from the business.
