Transcript of Fashion in the World War II Era

Fashion in the World War II Era
During WWII, extreme rations were issued on items. Certain fabrics were taken out of the reach of designers for the creation of military uniforms, and clothing prices fluctuated. But through this, brands revealed lines of clothing better suited for the men and women of that time, and celebrities- including Katharine Hepburn, Rita Hayworth, and Lucille Ball- set trends we still see today.
