WHY ARE DESIGNER BRANDS FRENCH?

As a big fan of fashion, I always pondered why the majority of designer brands are french ?

A BRIEF HISTORY

All started with the notable French King LOUIS XIV ( LE ROI SOLEIL). Louis XIV was a fashion lover but, in that time, Madrid that was the fashion capital by using Italian textile and jewelries because the French one were inferior. So the king LOUIS XIV he was kind of fed up to buy his suits and jewelry from Italy he wants to wear peaces made in France, so he asked his finance minister to find a solution. Thus, he invented Royale Manufacture ( MANIFACTURE ROYALE) which is an industrial establishment founded by royal privilege and enjoying Monopoly. So in less THAN a decade this policy had transformed the French economy, including the creation of the fashion magazine MERCURE GALANT.

KING LOUIS XIV
MERCURE GALANT

So after French Renaissance France known another King LOUIS PHILIPPE so L. P he knew if he wants to stay in power he should be nice with the bourgeois cause the kings before him, they always favorite les bourgeois ( feudal system shiit ) long story short at that time the bourgeois they were mimicking the noble ones in all the life aspects the way they talk, the way they dress….. So obviously they want to start to dress like them from that point that the fashion economy in France Knows a huge blow up.

KING LOUIS PHILIPPE

At first the nobles who go to the craftsmen and asked them to design what they want but, with time the demands become too high so the majority of crafstmen decided to create their own models which are standardize, and they propose their creations to their clients.

PARISIENNE FASHION STILL IN THE PROCESS OF DEVELOPMENT

THE IMPORTANCE OF FASHION

A lot of people see that clothes are just a way of protection from coldness or hotness, or a reflection of the culture of a specific country.

Fashion is a substantial way of expression, what we chose to wear matter it expresses a hidden side of our personality that sometimes words or attitudes cannot express it.Most of the time when I do not feel good, or I don’t feel myself that much, I choose to wear something that I love and then boom I start feeling so powerful, sexy and confident… Which means I start thinking positively so that my day start flourishing.

Personally I see that fashion is a great tool to improve your wellbeing it’s a great way to find mental stimulation, in turn building your confidence.Fashion is a magnificent way for expressing your self creativity and of sure your comfortability whatever your style is, even tho is not that trendy.
