Social Considerations Influencing World War II Bridal Attire
I had the honor of presenting a piece of my dissertation research on World War II Warbrides at the LIM College Fashion Now and Then: Meaning, Media, and Mode Conference last weekend. The presentation was titled, “Your Right to a Wedding: Social Considerations Influencing World War II Bridal Attire.” About once a year I get the opportunity to revisit my dissertation research and I’m always amazed that I still really enjoy reading my dissertation, looking at the data and images I collected, and thinking about an era so incredibly different from the one in which I live.
Below is a recording of the presentation I gave. I hope you enjoy! Check out my bio for the conference, here.
