Fashion House opened in Vienna in the 1880s by L. Rouff. Known for elaborate daywear, it was established in Paris by 1890. Jeanne Paquin was employed there as a seamstress before opening her own establishment. It was taken over by Maggy Besancon de Wagner in 1928. She changed her name and the name of the house to Maggy Rouff, and as such it operated until 1971. See separate entry for Maggy Rouff.
