Fashion on the Ration: The story of clothing on the home front during World War Two | Culture24

14 Apr

Laura Clouting, curator of the Imperial War Museum exhibition Fashion on the Ration: 1940s Street Style, talks about rationing, utility clothing and fashion on the home front during World War Two.

This is a completely different post to my usual.  I remember my mother wearing these clothes during World War two.

    I love stuff like this – food for research! Besides, I am old enough to remember as a child living among forties fashion (because most people were still wearing it in the fifties!)

      Glad you enjoyed this post Frederick. I love these fashions even now. History usually repeats itself so what goes around comes around We may see them again.

    What a charming post Rita! I love the styles of the 40’s and remember Joan Crawford wearing dresses like that in films. I think they may be coming back today. And so interesting how things were worn to accommodate black outs.

    I agree Dora, My Mum looked good in her little black outfit which she didn’t wear very often. So I inherited it when I was fifteen as it was still in good nik.
