LANVIN, CELEBRATING 125 YEARS OF COUTURE
Happy Birthday to the legendary Jeanne Lanvin
2014 marks the 125th year for the maison, LANVIN. Jeanne Lanvin was born on 1 January 1867 in Paris. The oldest of eleven children in a very modest family, her calling for the fashion industry was clear from a very young age. As a teenager, she began an apprenticeship with a milliner on rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. She was in charge of delivering hats to clients, and preferred running behind the horse-drawn carriage rather than spend money on a ticket. When she was sixteen, she became an apprentice milliner for Félix at 15 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, the current address for Lanvin Menswear. It is there that Jeanne Lanvin designed her first hats.
