Fashion in the 1940s were heavily influenced by world war II.
A selection of fashion photographs from the time that we used to imagine only black and white. And there is not just colored photos, so the quality of work that even today, not every fashion photographer so will be removed.
Still very interesting to see how the looked and how they dressed women of the era. Those who are indifferent to fashion, I think it will be interesting to see the beauty before the era of plastic surgery, silicone and photoshop.
Fashion in the 1940s were heavily influenced by world war II. The shortage of sewing fabrics has led to changes in clothes design. Skirts and jackets are shorter, pants — suits — pritalennye, and the overall appearance of the garment easier.
Replaced the double-breasted jackets came in single breasted with narrow lapels. Save wherever you can save. During the war I had to abandon expensive fabrics, bright colors, decorative elements, draperies and other items requiring additional yardage of the fabric. Hats began to shrink in size, and then completely out of fashion. In their place came the scarves, shawls and berets. In Vogue is pretty simple monochromatic style suits the type of “victory” and “Yutiliti” the popularity of which persisted after the end of the war. Women can mix the top from one suit, a skirt from another and get different clothes on every day.
Even the 1940s were a period of development of American designers. France and Italy have been very busy with other problems than fashion and fashionable clothing, which led to the emergence of a large number of new names on the other side of the ocean. Unfortunately, the majority of American fashion brands of the time did not survive till our days.
