Creative Fashion in the 40s

Need inspiration for the 6 Items Challenge? Well here’s a short clip from 1943, showing some innovative styling by Anne Edwards, the fashion editor of ‘Woman’ magazine. She demonstrates how the same dress can be used everyday of the week – but with some subtle changes, can be made to look very different. Her ideas include wearing a square of lace also around the neck, wearing a collar of flowers around the neck, and wearing a jacket over the dress with bodice.

So, possibly not entirely suitable for 2012, but maybe it’ll give our participants a few ideas about how to make those 6 items stretch further than you’d think…
