Paul Poiret

Style.com has a fun interactive profile of the great French designer Paul Poiret (1879-1944), seen here arriving in England in 1919 with two of his models (dressed in his clothes, of course). Read his bio and see examples of his work (including some lovely fashion illustration) here.

More: The wonderful Cathy Horyn, fashion critic for the New York Times, has a great post about Poiret on her blog.
