Christian Dior's New Look, 1947. As a reaction to the rationing of World War II the new look, using many metres of fabric, came into fashion. It was a return to the classic feminine shape, emphasising the bust and hips, with a tiny waist. I love how glamorous this looks with the tiny jacket and voluminous skirt.
The Women’s Land Army were the unsung heroines of World War II. With so many men overseas, women were brought in to work on farms, producing the vital food supplies needed to keep wartime Britain going.
