1940s Fashion: The Definitive Sourcebook

1940s Fashion book

Vintage fashion fans should make space on their bookshelves for the huge tome that is 1940s Fashion: The Definitive Sourcebook

It's brought to you by the team behind last year's 1930s Fashion, and this book is laid out along the same lines using hundreds of images in its 512 pages. 

The book covers all aspects of fashion in this decade, from innovations brought about by the shortages of war to the impact of Dior's 'New Look'. It also looks at the differing fashions between countries, such as Make Do and Mend in Britain, and the development of sportswear in the States.

Including names such as Nina Ricci, Pierre Balmain and Lucien Lelong and everything from daywear to lingerie styles, it's a must for those interested in fashion or this fascinating period. 

The book is currently available for £21.90 from Amazon
