Fashion on the Ration - 1940's Street Style Exhibition


The Imperial War Museum are celebrating the amazing creativity and innovation showed by women during rationing.

'England expects economy of clothes, economy of coupons, but an abundance of well dressed women.' - The Board of Trade 1943.

The 'Make Do and Mend' Scheme encouraged women to make do with what they had, from 'onesies' to wear in the air raid shelter to jewellery created from plane parts, this promises to be an awe inspiring exhibition of how women during the war made do with very little, often with stunning results.
