C20th Fashion History 1940s

Fashion history comes alive with these 1940s images.  These wonderful fashion design pictures are from a 1946 Tailleur Luxe Trade Magazine. The magazine aimed to give general tailors an idea of a good fashion line of the day.  This particular Tailleur edition contained 20 pages with 40 individual drawings.  Each of these 12 plates below mostly show 2 versions of the same pattern cut - perhaps a jacket and skirt or dress and a full to knee coat using the same pattern cutting lines.   These images truly illustrate fashion history of the 1940s. The costume history of 1949 hats/hair is here.

All thumbnail images enlarge into A4 size pages for personal use only printing and study. I've cleaned any background clutter so you can really see the silhouette and fashion detailing. 

Unfortunately the brief description of 1946 fashion changes in the front of the book with these images is in French so has limited meaning to me.  However from the French I can understand I would say the fashion plates more than speak for themselves and confirm the text with its references to corsages, godets and complicated cutting.

You can read more detailed text about 1940's fashions for women on the 1940s Utility Clothing Fashion page.

Hats are very helpful when dating photos as are hairstyles so try 1940s hats and hairstyles sections.
