14 February – Fashion In The First World War

Fashion In The First World War

Author Nina Edwards looks back at the First World War through clothing and small details of dress and appearance. Revealing the details of what people wore, whether as uniform, or through an enforced culture of ‘make-do-and– mend’ or haute couture, she shows how they all add to our understanding of what it was like to live then.

Did fashion matter in the First World War – and what might be its legacy?

Tickets are £7 and are available in advance from the Museum reception, The Woodstock Bookshop (01993 812760) and Trevor Hendy (01993 812103).
