Jacques Fath at work
Moira Shearer wearing Fath in The Red Shoes
Jacques Fath (1912-1954) was a French fashion designer, responsible, in part, for what was called the "New Look" in postwar haute couture. He designed the wardrobe that Moira Shearer wears in The Red Shoes and the front of his fashion house can be briefly glimpsed in the film as well.

After Fath died in the mid-1950s, the fashion house bearing his name continued to produce a line of scarfs and perfumes. Today, it is producing a line of handbags styled to appear vintage.
