fashionrevealed asked: Where is the Olivia de Havilland photo from? And do you know the year? I'm writing a paper about WWII fashions and I would love to use it but I need to be able to cite it!
Sorry to be getting back to you just now! I unfortunately do not have an answer for you though, I’ve had the picture in my computer for quite sometime now and don’t remember where I found it at. I tried to do a google search but still came up blank. I hope you find it! I love the subject of your paper!
British service women at a fashion salon, Paris, France, 1944.
"The British found the richness of the designs and materials unbelievable after the austerity of wartime rationing in England, and it was difficult for them to understand that the French regarded profligate use of materials as a gesture of resistance to the German occupation as it asserted their identity and denied the enemy material."
