From the 8 May, 1944 Life Magazine- Morris Kraus and a suit designed by the firm of
Zuckerman & Kraus.

Mr Kraus came to America in 1906 from Russia. He formed Zuckerman & Kraus with Ben Zuckerman in 1925 and from the start he designed feminine suits, stating that he hated manish-tailored suits. He has travelled to Europe over 90 times, including trips to Vienna to study design and to attend the Paris openings.

The suit pictured was designed by Mr Kraus. It is a delight, featuring lacy trim and decorative buttons, and it sold for $125.
