Gdss Marie Pavlovna ran a fashion workshop in Paris, KITMIR, avenue Montaigne. This photography was taken in 1927. She won an award at this time for her work.
She sold Russian embroideries to her friend Coco Chanel. Through her, Chanel made the acquaintance of GD Dimitri and was madly in love, but as Frédéric Miterrand in his documentary-video underlines, "Chanel loved the beauty of men but not their embraces", she was fascinated by Dimitri's stories about Imperial Russia, uniforms and dresses ...
well that's not how they met. BTW when exactly was Kitmir established? was it after Coco met Dmitri (feb 1921) or later?

Is that Swedish costume or just her eccentric way of dressing?

Considering how old she looks in the picture I would be surprised if it was a national costume unless it was Russian
