1. Today’s subject is Jeanne Paquin, an extremely influential turn of  the century designer, who in 1891 became the first woman to  independently open a Parisian fashion house.
During her time as  the head of the House of Paquin (1891-1920), Jeanne enjoyed a reputation  equal to that of Worth and Doucet. Paquin became known for her use of  pastels as well as her knowledge of publicity. She would often send  models wearing her newest designs to the opera or the races just to  increase brand awareness and word of mouth.
Shown above is a  delightful Paquin ball gown dating to 1895.
