Check out this amazing video featuring recently-unearthed footage of Jeanne Lanvin, mother of the House of Lanvin
, supervising fittings at her legendary atelier at 22 Faubourg Saint Honore in Paris:
Jeanne Lanvin lived from 1867 to 1946. Images and film footage of her is very rare—here, she is shown in fittings with models right before she launched her "Sorbier" or "Azalee" eveningwear. By her side is her assistant, Mademoiselle Renee.
