From DIY fashion to Hollywood glamour, the Wartime Silhouette looks at how fashion thrived despite war shortages. This exhibition explores how Americans wore functional, yet stylish clothes as an expression of duty and sacrifice.
As a member of the War Production Board declared, “Style has done much to help the war effort.” Fashions of the 1940s, as a statement of American distinctiveness and freedom, embodied one of the reasons “why we fight”.
This exhibit is free and no museum ticket is required.
