French artist and sculptor Janine Janet worked as a window decorator for several fashion houses in Paris during the 1950s and 1960s.

Her bizzare sculptures influenced by mannerism, 17th cabinets of curiosities or surrealism at the time, were made out of natural materials and represented strange mythological and dreamy creatures. She worked for Balenciaga, Givenchy, Balmain or Nina Ricci. She has also created the masks and costumes for Jean Cocteau’s film Le Testament d’Orphée and worked for the prince Ali Khan or the Queen Elisabeth II.
