Lanvin is the oldest French couture house still in full swing in the fashion business. After 125 years since the founder Jeanne Lanvin presented her first collection, today the house is stil one of the most valuable references and Lanvin’s fashion shows are the most awaited during the Paris fashion week. The Creative Director Alber Elbaz is a master, an endless innovator, one of the shining stars in the fashion firmament.
Three weeks ago the Musée Galliera, located in the elegant Avenue Marceau, inaugurated a retrospective dedicated to the enormous heritage of the couture house that Mademoiselle Jeanne started in 1890, at the age of 26, in rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. The director of the museum Olivier Saillard and Alber Elbaz – in collaboration with Swarowski – set up an exhibition dedicated to the fascinating figure of the life of Jeanne Lanvin, a muse who really used her savoir-faire in order to establish an enduring fashion house.
