24: In the process of doing this project, I have learned many different things about how fashion trends have changed, from prices of items to wearing leg paint instead of nylon stockings. I learned about what people used to wear, their accessories, where they shopped and how much they might have spent, all the way to what looks were considered acceptable.

25: If you compare the fashion trends from the 1940's to now, there is a big difference. I feel I have developed an appreciation of the clothes that we wear now. There are far more options available in every area of fashion today and things are more acceptable as well. Some fashions seem to find a way of coming back in style. I have to wonder if any from the 1940's will make its way back into the modern day world.
