TNA podcast: Fashion or ration

A short presentation by Robert Daoust from Feb 4, 2010, who speaks on how the fashionable woman of the Second World War and post war era (sometimes) managed to remain chic in a climate of rationing.

Focusing on the leading fashion designers Norman Hartnell and Hardy Amies, and using sources from The National Archives, the talk considers the fashion industry of the time, and reveals how they not only contributed to the war effort and made a lasting impact on British style. The presentation is quite humorous.
