Parisian designer Jeanne Lanvin left an indelible mark on the fashion industry ever since she started France's first haute couture house in 1889. At first a humble hat shop, Lanvin soon opened its now historical store on the prestigious Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré and began a legacy that would be inscribed into the annals of fashion history. Our generation hails Jeanne Lanvin as the mother of fashion, but in her times, she was just a loving mother; a mother who wanted her daughter to be the most beautiful lady in the world. Lanvin channeled her creative talents into women's wear with this newfound inspiration, and Paris was lovestruck. Lanvin's innate flair and eye for elegance were met with great acclaim in exhibitions worldwide. After Jeanne Lavine's passing, her label has continued to uphold its unique savoir-faire and timeless aesthetics.
