We are all accustomed to fashion houses defining trends and the way should people dress so that they fit the standard of beauty. Although today fashion became less restrictive regarding rules of style, there are still canonical practices that establish the vast field of clothes manufacturing. However, what makes a fashion collection a statement in its era is not its wearability but the creativity that hides behind the textile. Designers learned to inspire their work from all fields and collect matter that sets their work aside from the rest. With these thoughts in mind, we’ve tried to enlist the most memorable endeavors of fashion houses that stood the test of time.
