  1. Whoa, this article really caught my attention. Jeanne Lanvin passed away the day I was born. Sort of gives a person an eerie feeling. A side from her passing. Her designs were lovely. The elaborate embroidery designs, soft colors, and exquisite looking fabrics. I am sure the world of design was more enriched having Ms. Lanvin live to be 89.
