Their family crest was then and still is today, the royal “fleur de lis” above a pair of scissors. They continued to create wonderful clothing fashions even after the fall of the Bourbons during the French Revolutions and are still doing it today. Jacques Fath was considered the best of the three dominant influences on postwar Haute Couture, the others being Christian Dior and Pierre Balmain. The playwright Georges Fath was his great-grandfather. When it comes to postwar fashion, Jacques Fath was the premiere designer following World War II. Born in France in the early 20th century, Fath grew up in a time of turmoil and unrest. In 1937, Fath launched his own collection out of a petite salon in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. Two years later, the designer wed Genevi√®ve Boucher, a model and former secretary to Coco Chanel. As Fath and his wife expanded the brand to suit American audiences, he was also becoming a household name amongst the bourgeoisie in Paris. The couturier pioneered a number of fashions, including lace-top hosiery and glove-fitting ensembles, in addition to launching a fragrance line in 1946. Fath’s innovative designs and cross-continental reach would establish his brand as one of the most prominent post-WWII design houses, in company with Dior and Balmain. Before Fath could even thread a needle, his family’s connection to the fashion industry also had a 19th century royal stamp of approval. In many of Fath’s early designs, elements of the Empress’ regal style can be seen throughout his looks. Some of his exclusive clients; Evita Peron, Princess Elizabeth of Windsor (later to become Queen Elizabeth of England), Rita Hayworth, Lucie Daouphars (later to become The Dior Girl), Bettina Graziani (world’s first supermodel), Prince Aly Khan, Elizabeth Taylor, Dean Martin, Marylin Monroe, Jackie Kennedy etc… Note: We will replace the nose-pads with new ones if needed, also, the temple stems can be easily reshaped at the optician during the lens replacement.
