The first patent of the wardrobe was deposited at Viennes, about 1852. From this idea sprang many models, but the fashion of this time (crinoline, dresses filled or loose, handles with leg etc.) condemned this invention.
Around 1875, Louis Vuitton, learns, during a dinner with Charles Frederick Worth, the famous designer, that it is soon the end of puffed dresses. The next day, he makes a trunk to the measure of next dresses, with wardrobe and drawers. The wardrobe takes off again thanks to a radical change in the fashion and the appearance of suits and soft dresses.
