Sascha Brastoffs work helped to define the Modern American aesthetic. The designer served in the U.S. Army Special Services during World War II as a female impersonator. Carmen Miranda said, - I don't like zis boy. He looks more like me zan me. -
Sascha was the longtime companion of Hollywood costume designer Howard Shoup (who also did Sascha's outfits). Brastoff ran his ceramics and luxury goods business from their Beverly Hills home.
