Fashion from the 1940s is considered among the most influential and popular in modern times. These classic designs characterised by wide shoulders and slim silhouettes were largely necessary as fabric was in short supply after World War II. An ultra feminine new look was born.
There are two dolls made of light card and 32 costumes also made of light card.. There is a cocktail dress, a wool dress, a wedding gown, evening dress and much more. Featured designers include Molyneux, Dior, Carnegie and more.
Both the dolls and the outfits need to be carefully cut out, although it is a beautiful book to keep uncut as a record of fashion from the time.
