Activity 2: Making a Fashion Statement

Activity 2: Making a Fashion Statement
In the years following World War II, things slowly returned to normal in New Zealand. Soldiers returned home and settled back into regular life; and national sporting teams, like the New Zealand cricket team, got back together and started playing matches again. In the late 1940s, men and women would go to watch these events, men wearing hats and suits and women wearing dresses, hats, and gloves.


Compare the pictures of common clothing from the late 1940s to what you wear now (i.e. in 2017). Are they similar or are they quite
different?


On your blog tell us which of the two styles you prefer and why. The pictures above were taken over 65 years ago! What do you think people will be wearing 65 years from now?

  1. Hey again Hilary, thank you for comparing the fashion of the 1940's and also the fashion of today. They're certainly very different pictures. I can't imagine wearing lots of layers and coats would be very much fun in this heat. It isn't very stylish, you're right. It seems like nowadays we have many more options and styles to choose from.

    What do you think the fashion will be like in sixty five years?

    Thanks, Billy
