Jeanne Lanvin (1867-1946) opened a millinery shop in Paris in 1890. She became known for the beautiful dresses she was making for her daughter, and so in 1909, Lanvin opened her dressmaking business.By 1915 she had developed the style for which she was most famous, the robes de style. These dresses went against the prevailing style of the time, and featured a small waist and full skirt. Lanvin continued to design the robes de style dresses even in the 1920s.Lanvin died in 1946, and the business was taken over by her daughter, who hired Antonio del Castillo in 1950 to design the collection. During this time, the house became known as Lanvin-Castillo.
