Fashion designing can be loosely defined as ‘the art of creating fashionable apparel’. With the passage of time, however, the concept of ‘fashion designing’ has extended to other things such as fashion accessories such as jewellery, bags, footwear, etc. The origin of fashion designing dates as far back as 1826. Charles Frederick Worth is believed to be the first fashion designer of the world, from 1826 to 1895. Charles, who was earlier a draper, set up a fashion house in Paris. It was he who started the tradition of fashion houses and telling his customers what kind of clothing would suit them.
