Jacques Fath

When I saw this pictures I had to check out who the creator was and I found this...

This extraordinary breathtaking creation is made by Jacques Fath, a French fashion designer who was considered one of the three dominant influences on postwar haute couture, the others were Christian Dior and Pierre Balmain.

He was a delightful young man and his charms were appreciated a lot by the press and his clients. It's a pity that his career was so short, he died very young.
He was married with Geneviève Boucher de la Bruyère. She was a former model from an aristocratic family and she directed the business side of her husband's firm during his lifetime.

Here is an other creation, 1951.
I think that his work was really fantastic!
I adore the first dress (above), so feminine, classic but modern at the same time.


hope you enjoyed!

He was such a talent, it really is a shame that he passed away during the mid-50s. I can only image the wondrous looks he would have continue to go creating as that decade progressed.

Delightful roundup of photos, I especially like how you can see the reflection of his back in the mirror, it's as though you're glimpsing the who person, instead of just a face in a photo.

Wishing you a gorgeous day, sweetie - big hugs,
♥ Jessica
