Jeanne Paquin (1869 – 1936) opened her couture house in 1891 on the Rue de la paix, next door to the House of Worth. President of the Fashion Section of the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1900, Paquin later became the first Parisian couturier to open branches in London, Buenos Aires and Madrid.
Jeanne Paquin designed gowns of quiet sophistication, which appealed to women of refined taste. Her clients included the queens of Belgium, Portugal, and Spain. As Robert Forrest wrote in 1925: “Fashion once simply did not know what to wear until Madame Paquin brought out her season’s models; and as for her competitors, their plight was pitiful.”

Paquin
Afternoon dress
Black point d’esprit, silk taffeta, grosgrain ribbon, lace
Circa 1902, France


The Rockefeller family member who wore this dress would have made a striking figure among the muted pastel tones of Belle Époque fashion. Jeanne Paquin layered black fabrics and trims of varying weights and finishes to achieve nuanced variations in pattern, shade, and texture. At first glance, the detailed embellishment appears subtle and restrained, adding to the refined understatement of this fashionable black dress.
