Description
 
Dramatic fashion and textile designs served as patriotic propaganda for the Japanese, Brit., and Amer. during WWII. This book presents 100s of examples of how fashion was employed on all sides of the conflict to boost morale and fan patriotism. The book documents the development of the role of fashion as propaganda first in Japan and soon thereafter in Britain and the U.S. Essays by 9 authors discuss traditional and contemporary Japanese styles and what they revealed about Japanese domestic attitudes to war, and show how these attitudes echoed or contrasted with Brit. and Amer. fashions. “Provides insights into style and design, fashion history, material culture and the social history of Japan, the U.S. and Britain.” Color photos.
