Designer fashion shopping needn't be as expensive as you
think, that's a common mistake that people make. Many have found that internet has
managed to change that rule and you can now find designer fashion for substantially lower
prices than in the shops without moving from the comfort of your own home.
As for the fitting of the clothes, most website's zoom-in and out options and
features are so advanced that you can get a very good look at the clothes before you buy them.
The sizing charts and product information for most internet shops are also very precise and can
be also measured according to well-known brands that you might already own. With this new and
growing trend for online fashion and shopping, looking back on the history of the designer
label can help us to understand why it has grown so popular today.
The first fashion designer was Charles Frederic Worth (1826-1895). Before

favour of different and new designers such as Coco Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Pierre Cardin,
Gianfranco Ferre, John Galliano, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, Donna Karan, Calvin
Klein, Christian Lacroix, Karl Lagerfeld, Ralph Lauren, Issey Miyake, Isaac Mizrahi, Yves Saint
Laurent, Donatella Versace, Gianni Versace, Comme des Garçons and Yohji Yamamoto to name but a
Different categories have helped to define Modern Fashion Design. Most people
make a difference between Haute Couture, which is custom made and meant exclusively for private
customers, and Ready to Wear which is standard sized and meant for large productions. The
category you will be able to explore here is 'Designer
Ready-to-Wear', which is high quality clothing, possessing a unique cut, the
intention of which is to set new trends and philosophies.
Buying designer fashion is a little more than just buying clothes. When you
do so, you are making an investment on many levels: economic (positive pricing / can sell later
