War and Dress Exhibit Photos

During World War II the fashion industry was impacted by rations, which were enforced in support of the war. As a result, a minimal military style emerged that paraded patriotism and uniformity amongst the United States population. Arnow Professor Jill Carey, and Fashion Retail and Merchandising students Rhonda Jaber and Bryana Prout, collaborated to create a presentation displaying the effects of the Controlled Commodity 1941 or CC41 on attire and accessories during the time. The exhibit featured pieces from the Lasell Fashion Collection, Cur.io Vintage, and the Museum of Fine Arts Boston.

President Alexander Responds to the Tragedy in Orlando  Thursday, June 16, 2016We the people of the United States cherish our freedoms. Whether it be the freedom to say what we want, to assemble in groups of our choosing, to follow the religions of our choice, to vote as our conscience demands, to own and carry weapons, to start new businesses and make money, and to move about as we please -- these are values we hold dear and are reluctant to compromise.
