Law-maker of European Fashion. Works of Charles Worth and His Fashion House in the Hermitage Collection

For the first time on display are all the works made in the fashion house of Charles Frederic Worth (1825-1895) that are presently kept in the Museum funds. 18 costumes represent vivid examples of perfect skill and sense of style. Visitors will have a beautiful chance to follow the development of European fashion during the period of fifty years.
In 1857 Charles Worth founded a firm in Paris that soon became world famous. Almost all royal families of Europe wore costumes made by Worth's firm. His clients were first ladies of the high society and of demi-monde, actresses among whom was the great Sarah Bernhard. Charles Worth got commission from the Russian court. The morganatic wife of Alexander II Princess Yurievskaya, Princess Paley, Duchess Baryatinskaya and her daughters were his clients. The wife of Alexander III Maria Feodorovna commissioned her dresses in the fashion house of Worth for more than 30 years. Most part of the costumes on display belonged to her.
