Jeanne Lanvin (1867 – 1946) began her career as a milliner before moving into the world of fine dressmaking. She created children’s wear and perfume, but was best known for her
robes de style
, an adaptation of the 18th-century fashion for wearing panniers. “Modern clothes need a certain romantic feel,” she said. They should not become “too everyday and practical.” Mrs. Charles S. Dewey wore this moiré silk dress with crystal beads, and pearls when presented to the Court of Saint James in 1927.

And I am nothing of a builder
, but here I dreamt I was an architect
And I built this balustrade to keep you home, to keep you safe from the outside world
