1940's Fashion Designers

Marjorie Field Fashion Designer in the 1940's 

Fashion became regulated in the 40's due to World War II , the government had strict rations on materials and the type of materials that were previously available was no longer due to countries not selling to England . Although these restrictions meant that fashion changed, couture became a phenomenon, here are some designs by Marjorie Field who designed couture  for her firm Field Rhoades, which were recently exhibited in the V & A . 
These images are helpful for styling and hair , showing original sources from the 40's .

The hair has been designed in victory rolls and the hat has been placed on the opposite side, this gives a balance to the head.The dress is quite low cut as the button only start around the bust area . The dress also has a collar and rolled up sleeves which relates back to my styling decision with the blazer for image 1 . 

These images show the style of couture that was being made in the 40's they are show the colour tones. In the last image blue and red have been brought together like in Julia's outfit . The silhouettes of the drawings also show the shape of a woman in the 40's which depict a small waist and  shapely hips .
