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.
