Maureen Dunlop de Popp, a female pilot who flew Spitfires, Lancasters and Hurricanes during the Second World War, has died aged 91. Dunlop joined the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA) in 1942 and became one of a small group of female pilots based at White Waltham in Berkshire who were trained to fly 38 types of aircraft between factories and military airfields across the country.
The 40s look...The World War II puts the fashion in a second thought. The raw materials are difficult to be found because they are used as the war's equipment. The cost of the fabrics is really high, and rayon appears as a more affordable idea. Fashion takes its military and strictly look. The shoulders are accented with wadding, not only in suits but also in dresses. All these until 1947, when Christian Dior makes his revolution and creates the New Look.
I am so excited to announce that I will be returning to San Francisco and the Marin County in February 2017. I would LOVE to connect with businesses in this area while I travel and write on location. If you would like to be featured on my website (or even have your business as a setting in a new narrative of mine) please contact me on julia.k.trask. -JTrask.
