Illusionist Harry Houdini Birthday

What happened on March 24?

Leading the adventurous celebrations today are American explorer John Wesley Powell (*1834) and actor Jim Parsons (*1973).

On the same day insurance giant Metlife was founded in 1868, we commemorate
a moment that would make illusionist Harry Houdini (*1874) proud.
In an event later dramatized in the movie ‘The Great Escape‘, 76 Allied prisoners of war begin breaking out of the German camp ‘Stalag Luft III’ in 1944.

Remember. War is sad. Make fashion instead.
If you need inspiration, birthday boy Tommy Hilfiger (*1951) is your man!

Getting inspired is so much fun.
