Silk and Steel: French Fashion, Women and WWI
WWI exploded in the late summer of 1914 and though underrepresented in the histories, women were working hard in war industries, nursing, transportation and fighting for equal rights. Women’s fashion also played a surprisingly important role during WWI, especially in France. Learn why fashion was more than simply a means of personal expression in the new exhibition Silk and Steel: French Fashion, Women and WWI – a new chapter of the history of the war at the Museum and Memorial. Sept. 25, 2020 – Sept. 6, 2021, Wylie Gallery
