FC: Fabulous Fashions in the 40's By: Alexis Medina
1: Why I chose fashion in the forties I chose fashion in the forties because i love fashion. Since i know that was around the time war ended i thought it would interesting to see what clothing they used or had.
2: What I Already Knew - Women and girls wore skirts and dresses(never above the knees) - They also wore flats and heels - Men wore mostly black suits - They also would wear black lace up shoes
3: My Resources - Books: Five Centuries of American Costume; the New Book of Knowledge; the Dictionary of Costumes -Encyclopedia Volume 7 - Interview with my grandmother
4: First Question my first question was: What is fashion?
5: Fashion is basically a certain clothing style that is in style for a certain period of time
6: Second Question: Did women/men wear things out of the ordinary(dresses and suits) in public.
7: normally they would not unless women/men were working then women would wear slack and so would men
8: Third Question What material did men use to make suits during World War 2
9: Men really used heavy silk, polyester, and started to knit the suits.
10: Conclusion Fashion in the 40's was lots of fun. Although it was a difficult time for the US we used resources and techniques to make our clothing. It goes to show that resources are never out of style.
11: I've learned what fashion is exactly. | I've also learned and observed that a lot of the fashions from that time period are coming back in to style today. | That World War 2 really effected there fashion, men and Women
