In 1959 French models and clothes of Fashion House Christian Dior arrived in Moscow for a fashion week. Soviet people of those times who had just survived the most awful war in history could never forget the beautiful ladies and their dresses. The French guests took some photographs that were even published in LIFE magazine. Soviet people were simply shocked by what they saw. It was written on their faces that were luckily photographed by Howard Sochurek.
It is during the summer of 2011 in Hoi An that it all began. Réhahn, the photographer, who was at the time a tourist with great interest for Vietnam, met Bui Thi Xong, a Vietnamese woman aged 74 years old at the time of their encounter. This is the incredible story of an elder Vietnamese lady that has become an iconic figure of Vietnam after posing for the French photographer.
