Lanvin is a high fashion house founded by Jeanne Lanvin. Lanvin made such beautiful clothes for her daughter Marie-Blanche de Polignac and soon they began to attract the attention of a number of wealthy people who requested copies for their own children. Soon, Lanvin was making dresses for their mothers, and some of the most famous names in Europe were included in the clientele of her new boutique on the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, Paris. After Jeanne Lanvin passed away, her daughter became president of the company and continued to design collections until 1950. Several designers succeeded her with the ambition of keeping the brand’s expertise, state of mind, and excellence intact. Talented figures such as Claude Montana, Dominique Morlotti, and Alber Elbaz have helped assure that Lanvin’s style lasts throughout the ages, making Lanvin the oldest French fashion house in operation. On November 20, 2013, Lanvin became the official tailor of Arsenal FC, a London-based football club.
