Fashion History: The Mother-Daughter Couture Of Jeanne Lanvin
May 10, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 6:30 pmFree
The house of Lanvin was founded in 1889 by Jeanne-Marie Lanvin. Originally trained as a milliner, Lanvin studied under a Parisian dressmaker and began by making outfits for her daughter, Marguerite. Her daughter’s dresses were so admired that soon the ladies of Paris society were clamoring for versions of their own. In the spirit of Mother’s Day, The RealReal’s own fashion historian, Lisa Santandrea, will delve into the story of Lanvin’s origins and explore how her aesthetic codes continue today.
