une idée de Jenny

with No Comments

After more than 5 years of historical research, the first biography on Jenny Sacerdote, one of the very first women in France to be awarded the Légion d’Honneur, has been published by Editions Récits. The book is entitled Une Idée de Jenny.

Collecting nearly 500 press articles, administrative documents, minutes and family accounts, Anne Vogt-Bordure was able to retrace the exciting life of Jenny Sacerdote, the French adventurer who revolutionized fashion on both sides of the Atlantic.

This is the epic story of one of the most important figures of the interwar period. Born of an unknown father in Périgueux, and who died in Nice, she was destined to become a teacher, but ended up, between 1909 and 1948, at the head of one of the most important fashion houses of her time, employing nearly 1,000 workers.

No one has ever written about this great lady who contributed so much to the history of fashion! This 288-page story, richly illustrated with photos and drawings, reads like a novel!

Une Idée de Jenny is available on the website Editions Récits (2 working days delivery on the French territory).
