Downton Abbey Fashion Era - House-of-Doucet-Galerie-de-vente-Paris-Fashion-1910. In 1910 for a truly elegant – and rich woman, visiting the great fashion salons of Paris was an obligation which she could not shirk. Out of ‘necessity’ she had to go to these shows or ‘galeries’ – not only to learn about the latest modes but to ‘be seen’ by others in society.
