I could also take the patterns he has created for example the last image I could crop the dress in Adobe Photoshop and change the colours or add detail or create my own pattern using traditional or digital methods that is similar to his design.

Georges Doeuillet was known for fashion from 1910 onwards, some of the images above show his work I think he wanted detail to be perfect to make the dresses he created elegant such as the different patterns used on one dress but all of a similar colour or using sequins and crystal beads he also would use the best material such as silk which meant the dress would fall and fit well on the person buying it. I think he made a legacy by adding sequins and crystal beads etc, to the clothing he produced and it’s still used today in the fashion industry on many clothes and accessories.

Jaques Doucet’s work is similar to Georges Doeuillet as they both include detail in the dresses they have created such as sequins, However i think Jaques Doucet’s work is a lot more simple and elegant, However Art Deco was highly in fashion in the era of the 1910’s and the last dress is bold in showing that but she could’ve shown this through adding beads and sequins in her dresses for a more subtle look where as using material is a bold way of showing it.
