French Fashion, Women, and the First World War: A Virtual Tour

French Fashion, Women, and the First World War: A Virtual Tour
Fri., March 26 | 2PM  | Zoom
RSVP for Zoom info: cr775@hunter.cuny.edu

In moments of great upheaval—such as in France during the First World War—fashion becomes more than a means of personal expression. As women throughout the country mobilized in support of the war effort, discussions about women’s fashion bore the symbolic weight of an entire society’s hopes and fears. This exhibition represents an unprecedented examination of the dynamic relationship between fashion, war, and gender politics in France during World War I. 

Co-sponsored with Hunter History and Film and Media Studies departments, and in collaboration with the Bard Graduate Center Gallery.
