History of Mr. Bryan: Jack Bryan was married to Miss Elliette (I love her dress too) Jack Bryan and Miss Elliette split up. Jack Bryan formed his own company in the late 1960’s. You may have come across dresses, that have labels that say design by Dupuis. Well Mr. Dupuis designed for Jack Bryan and Miss Elliette. But when Mr. Bryan formed his own company, Mr. Dupuis went with him. Information courtesy of Vintage Fashion Guild.
