Wearing the 1959/1960 Dress Silhouette by Jules-Francois Crahay of Nina Ricci, Vogue #1017

I marvel over the resiliency of some of the designers who lived through WWII. Jules-Francois Crahay was captured by the Germans and was a prisoner of war for five years.

During his incarceration, the young Jules-Francois Crahay had a serendipitous interaction with Nina Ricci.
