Jean-Philippe Worth's Gowns

Charles Fredrick Worth's son, Jean-Philippe, began working as an assistant to his father in 1875.  While he gradually began to create some designs of his own, his father was still credited as the main designer.  Upon his father's death in 1895, Jean-Philippe took over the House of Worth as head designer.  At this time, House of Worth was no longer the only important fashion house in Paris, and Jean-Philippe catered more towards the wealthy elite rather than women of varying means as his father did.  He still continued the elegant, well-crafted aesthetic of his father, and House of Worth still remained a powerful force in the fashion world until about World War I, when it was on to a third generation, Jean Charles Worth.

Like father, like son.
