Lanvin, Jeanne
Pronunciation: John La- vin

From her storied feud with fellow french fashion visionary Coco Chanel to building one of the first haute couture fashion empires, Jeanne Lanvin is the greatest designer you never heard of. Starting out as a milliner late 19th century Paris, Lanvin used the dresses she designed for her young daughter as the basis for the design house that became the epitome of French elegance and style. She’s best known for her mother-daughter collections and robe de style dresses, dresses characterized by a dropped waistline and a full skirt. Lanvin is now led by designer Alber Elbaz.
