    Harem Pants

    Mai 15th, 2016

    A Harem pant is a long and very loose fitting pant that is gathered around the ankle, creating a very baggy and voluminous look. The Harem pant was inspired by the style of Turkish and Middle Eastern pants. It was first introduced to the western fashion market for women by Paul Poiret in 1910.

    Paul Poiret

    Juli 22nd, 2010

    Paul Poiret, French fashion designer, lived from 1879 to 1944. Poiret started in fashion as an umbrella maker. He designed his first clothes as a teenager by collecting the leftovers of the fabrics that were used to cut the umbrella patterns. Poiret sold his sketches to Madeleine Cheruit, a popular dressmaker at that time. She saw a talented young designer in Poiret and purchased a few of his sketches to sell them to Parisian couture houses, until the French designer was hired by Jacques Doucet in 1896. Poiret opened his own fashion house in 1904 and invented the controversial kimono coat. Known as the “King of Fashion” from 1904 to 1924, he also introduced the first outfit that women could put on without the extra help of their maid.
