From Paris to the World
The Blend Within “Callot Soeurs” The Callot sisters, Marie, Marthe, Regina, and Josepine, along with their brother Jacques, founded the fashion house “Callot Soeurs” in 1895, in Paris. The sisters were born in France to a Jewish family originally from Hungary.
Callot Soeurs were known for their innovative designs that blended various cultural and artistic influences. Their designs often featured a mix of Far East Asia, Central Asia and East European styles, combining elements of Art Nouveau, the Ballets Russes, and the Art Deco movement.
The sisters drew inspiration from their travels, incorporating Egyptian, Turkish, and Japanese motifs into their designs. They also experimented with fabrics, using lace, tulle, and silk to create intricate and delicate pieces.
Their clients included royalty, socialites, and celebrities of the time. They were particularly popular with American socialites, who appreciated the unique blend of styles in their designs.
The Callot Soeurs were also known for their innovative approach to dressmaking, incorporating techniques like draping and layering to create unique and intricate garments.
Today, the legacy of the Callot Soeurs lives on in their influence on modern fashion, particularly in the blending of different cultural and artistic influences in design.
