"At the heart of this book is a visual document of key collections from the beginning of Lanvin's career through 1946, the year of her death. Images of original fashion illustrations, heading and embroidery swatches play a crucial role in demonstrating the intricate, creative, and innovative techniques used by Jeanne Lanvin for her surface embellishments. Images of Lanvin artifacts, acquired from various museums and collections, serve to document the importance of Lanvin design and aesthetic in the world of art and design."--BOOK JACKET.
