Fashion Designers & The Rise of the Fashion Industry

The late 19th Century saw the rise of the fashion designer as both instrumental in the creation of fashion as an industry as well as being a force in molding and shaping fashion styles. In this section I will be collecting a series of posts that will help increase understanding of the fashion designer as a creative force that built an entire industry during the period from 1870 through 1920 (or thereabouts).

We hope that you find these posts to be both informative and entertaining.
