The emergence of Art Deco in France was a complex and fascinating process, in which couturier Paul Poiret played a key role. Poiret worked with many artists, architects, and photographers, including Raoul Dufy, Erté, Georges Lapape, Paul Iribe, Mallet-Stevens, and Man Ray. He surrounded himself with the work of Constantin Brancusi, Robert Delaunay, and Kees van Dongen, who was inspired by the extravagant parties Poiret gave. Poiret's creations and the artists in his circle provided the seed for French Art Deco.
