Lucien Lelong (11 October 1889-11May 1958) was a French couturier who was prominent from the 1920s to the 1940s.



Born in Paris as the son of Arthus Lelong, the owner of a textiles shop, he trained at the Hautes Etudes de Commerciales in Paris and opened his fashion house in the late 1910. After over 40 year in business, Lelong retired in 1952.

Lelong did not actually create the garment that bore his label. “He did not design himself, but worked through his designers, wrote Christian Dior, who was nember of the lelong team from 1941 until 1946, during which time he created the collections in collaboration whit Pierre Balmain. “ Nevertheless” Dior continued” in the course of his career as a couturier his collections retained a style which was really his own and greatly resembled him.

Among Lelongs clients were Marie Duhamel, Jeanne Ternisien (wife of the banker Georges Nelze), the Duchess de la Rockefoucauld, Greta Garbo, Gloria Swanson, Colette and Rose Kennedy.
