The Oldest of 11 children, Jeanne Lanvin became an apprentice milliner at Madame Félix in Paris at the age of 16.
In 1895, Jeanne married her first husband, Count Emilio di Pietro
August 31st 1897 Jeanne Lanvin gave birth to her only child, she would become Lanvin’s muse and model for early designs.
“She sewed to dazzle her daughter, and in doing so she dazzled the world.”
The label’s logo was based on a drawing by Lanvin of the bond between mother and daughter.
Lanvin made such beautiful clothes for her daughter that they began to attract the attention of a number of wealthy friends who requested copies for their own children. Soon Lanvin was creating dresses for their mothers and by the time she opened her first millinery boutique, some of the most elite women in Europe. Key Fashion Moments Lanvin became known for her mother and daughter outfits and elegant robes de style based on traditional 18th century designs.
in 1908 a child apparel department was created in Lanvin’s millinery store. And in 1909 departments for young ladies and women were opened in Lanvin’s boutique. In this year Jeanne Lanvin joined the Syndicat de la Couture, which marked her formal status as a couturière and her entry into the world of luxury fashion.
1911 saw the first known Lanvin wedding gown created for the Summer Lanvin collection.
In 1913, Lanvin created her famous ‘robes de style’ based on traditional 18th century pannier designs. These cinch waisted, full-skirted dresses remained popular for many years and pre-empted the New Look made famous by Christian Dior. The style was repeated throughout the ensuing twenty years in a variety of fabrics.
in 1914 Lanvin made a move into exotic eveningwear. Influenced by styles from the Far East, Lanvin used sumptuous velvets and satin. During the 1920s Lanvin populised the simple Chemise dress

Marguerite died twelve years after her beloved mother.in 1993 the house of Lanvin decided to concentrate solely on ready-to-wear. in August 2001, Lanvin, the oldest fashion house still in operation Lanvin did not drape or sketch her ideas but rather gave verbal instructions to a team of sketchers. Although her Art Déco embroideries continued far into the 1930s, Jeanne’s inspiration came from many periods of art to fruit, gardens, museums, travel, and costume collections. Her clothing was easily recognisable from her masterful use of embellishment. Lanvin travelled the world, listing her discoveries and inspiration in a ‘fabric library’. Coptic and Chinese embroideries, textiles and images from Japan and Persia, all were catalogued and injected back into contemporary fashion with the skill of an artist.
