It was during the 20s that fashion was at its peak. French couturiers, Paul Poiret and Madeleine Vionnet, were at the height of their careers, creating beautiful and modern garments for the new woman.

In fact, to me, Paul Poiret is very similar to Marc Jacobs because they both were/are revolutionaries of their decade.
