About

The House of Heim began in 1898 and is the oldest Paris house that is still run by family members. Jacques Heim entered the family business in 1925. One of the things the house was known for was providing the aristocracy of Europe with exquisite eveningwear. Jacques Heim began a Couture Department which became extremely successful. In 1934 the house moved to des Champs-Elysees and a few years later into larger quarters at avenue Matignon and added two (2) branches in Biarritz and Cannes as did other noted French designers Jean Patou and Chanel. Heim became the official dressmaker to Mme. Charles de Gaulle. From 1958-62, Heim was president of the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne.

Jacques Heim circa early 1950's "New Look" style gown designed with ballerina length front and dramatic dipped back. Boned corset bodice of black chantilly lace overlaid on red silk taffeta. Extending into full skirt of layers and layers of black tulle. Red silk/satin trim at bustline and straps.
