Why do so many of us fashion lovers fantasize and day dream about Paris?
It's not just because every movie set in Paris is dream-like, or because the city is actually dream-like, but because of its history.
In the early times, when fashion was increasing in popularity with women, the Parisian woman were bold, sexy and brave. They challenged limits and weren't afraid of expressing themselves. This is why so many of the early illustrations that adorned the Vogue covers featured French women. Fashion artists desired nothing more than to draw french women because of their fashion and uniqueness.
During this time, women in America began to notice the beautifully illustrated and photographed stylish French women. Fashion travelled across the ocean and American women began embracing the boldness and stylish clothing of the French. For so many years, American women admired the Parisian women and overtime, much of the Parisian culture had adapted into America, much revolving around fashion.
And so, year after year, our admirations may change slightly, however if you ever find yourself dreaming of Paris fashions and lifestyle, know that it is embedded into our history.
