The figure of the couturier was born in the middle of the 19th century with Charles Frederich Worth (1826-1895), who offered his services to women of the upper classes to make themyour dresses. Before him, LeRoy? was in charge of making the dresses that Napoleon would wear at his coronation. But, as the specialist in stage costumes Diana Fernández says, LeRoy? was not a creator, he executed the designs that other artists visualized, therefore he cannot be considered the first designer:

However, "officially" LeRoy? was not a creator, his task - accomplished with great skill - was to reproduce the designs of those who considered themselves true creators: artists such as Louis-Philibert Debucourt, Jean-Baptiste Isabey and Auguste Garneray, illustrators of the fashion magazines of the time. This is how it has been recorded how at the coronation ceremony of Napoleon, an act aimed at being a perfect display of power, in addition to hiring Louis David and the architects Charles Percier and Pierre Fontaine to decorate the environment, Jean Baptiste Isabey was commissioned design the costumes for both Josefina and the ladies of her court. Its producer was LeRoy? (Diana, 2015).
