French Fashion is popular

Just like the French kiss is world renowned, French fashion is also popular in all the countries, since fashion has been given utmost importance and priority in France. The difference between French fashion and fashion of the other countries is that every kind of uniqueness in the fashion industry originates here, whereas in the other countries it is only popularly imitated and followed by the people.

French Fashion has been in trend from the 17th Century, when the industries of luxury goods got under the control of the Royal family. It then happened that the Royal Court was said to have a taste of style in Europe. Later, the fashion press was created in order to market designs to people outside the French court. This fashion press introduced two terms – seasons and changes, that mean that the fashion must take twists according to the seasons and there should always be something new in the trend. Usage of different brocades and laces was introduced by the French fashion.

Although the word “fashion” represents a term for women, it was highly meant for men in the late 17th Century because all the men of the royal family, including the king himself, believed in creating a style of his own and it all started with the using of wigs in the court, although, initially, it was only meant to hide the king’s increasing baldness.
