Paul Poiret (20 April 1879, Paris, France - April 30 1944, Paris) was a fashion designer based in Paris before the First World War, during the Belle Époque. He was taken on by the fashion designer Jacques Doucet as a draftsman. When he completed his apprenticeship with the House of Worth in 1904 he opened up his own fashion house, and by 1905-07 had produced a revolutionary style.

The Villa Paul Poiret (1921-1923) was designed by Robert Mallet-Stevens.
