Veteran's Day ExhibitRight in time for Veteran’s Day (11.11.11), The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA) has opened Beauty as Duty: Textiles on the Home Front in WWII Britain. This show isn’t an average fashion exhibition. It also serves as a history lesson by exploring the trends that came to be during WWII as a patriotic sense of style flourished amidst war-time restrictions of textiles. The exhibition, on view through May 2012, includes dresses, propaganda scarves with war motifs, uniforms, an example of a war-time wedding dress, photographs, a vintage British Vogue, and other items from the time period.
