DOEUILLET was established in 1900 in Paris. The house became known for creating iconic haute couture gowns from the finest materials from around the world. DOEUILLET created the first cocktail dress, an innovative style that became synonymous with the roaring twenties. This period of time is unrivaled in its influence of fashion even till this day.
DOEUILLET was originally located at 18 Place Vendôme, the current location of the Chanel flagship store in Paris before later moving to 24 Place Vendôme, the current home of Van Cleef & Arpels.
The vision of DOEUILLET continues to inspire fashion houses the world over. Iconic DOEUILLET gowns can be found at major museums around the world including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs at the Louvre in Paris.
Benjamin Guggenheim was an early investor in the house prior to his passing on board the maiden voyage of RMS Titanic in 1912. DOEUILLET was featured heavily in Vogue, La Gazette du Bon Ton, the New York Times and Harpers Bazaar.
