PARIS, Mar 12, 2010 / FW/ — The House Worth was opened in Paris in 1858 by English designer Charles Frederick Worth who is regarded as the founder of Haute Couture. The company still exists today, though it is better known for its exquisite perfume than clothing.

Reviving the legend of the house, Italian fashion designer Giovanni Bedin created bustier dresses that are based on the 19th century silhouettes yet definitely for today.
