#038 France...Thanks Jerome!
These 2 lovely stamps were issued on Jan.11,2010 to celebrate 120th anniversary of Lanvin fashion house.
Jeanne Lanvin (b. Jeanne-Marie Lanvin, Paris, January 1, 1867–d. Paris, July 6, 1946) was a French fashion designer and the founder of the Lanvin fashion house. One of the most influential designers of the 1920s and '30s, Jeanne Lanvin's skillful use of intricate trimmings, virtuoso embroideries and beaded decorations in clear, light, floral colors became a Lanvin trademark. When Lanvin died in 1946, ownership of the firm was ceded to the designer's daughter, Marguerite di Pietro.
