    I love Main Boucher! He is not so well known as a designer today so not many people know who he is. I am glad I learned something new about him.

      I know! His clothes are just so gorgeous. He also designed the WAVE uniform and came over to help the Navy on the request of Josephine Forrestal, who was the wife of the Navy commander.
