The early Forties might have been years of make-do-and-mending and fashionable inventiveness, but the latter half of the decade saw an explosion of contemporary forward-looking fashions. '1940s fashion the definitive sourcebook' is an extensive survey that brings together previously unpublished photography and beautifully drawn illustrations to provide a comprehensive overview of the period, from the austerity fashion of the war years to the introduction of Dior's revolutionary 'New Look', and the rise of Hollywood glamour. From haute couture to ready-to-wear, this publication comprehensively documents the season-by-season fashions of the WWII era and the immediate post war period. The images feature prominent stars of the decade such as Joan Bennett, Veronica Lake and Barbara Stanwyck, and designers including Dior, Lucien Lelong, Balmain, Nina Ricci, and Worth.
