Wearing propaganda

Image of Wearing propaganda

Textiles on the home front in Japan, Britain and the United States, 1931–1945

J. M. Atkins Yale University Press, 2005.

Protest fashion from the Vietnam War years is widely familiar, but today few are aware that dramatic fashion and textile designs served as patriotic propaganda for the Japanese, British, and Americans during the Asia-Pacific War (1931–1945). This fabulously illustrated book presents hundreds of examples of how fashion was employed by commercial interests on all sides of the conflict to boost morale and fan patriotism.
