The History of the Creative Branches During WW2

The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York organized its annual Symposium on 18 October 2019 on a classic theme: Paris, Capital of Fashion. Véronique was invited to talk with Dr. Sophie Kurkjian (Institut d'Histoire du Temps Présent, Paris) on the history of Paris fashion before, during and after WW2. The responsibilities of the creative fashion firms during the German occupation of the Northern French zone, including Paris, constitute an enduring topic of debates among historians.
