I adore glamorous 1940s fashion. I admire how British women of the period managed to create glamour out of osterity. However, I have always preferred the American influence and in particular 1940s Hawaiian and Pacific Wear. Popularity in these designs grew after WW2 with the development of travel and tourism allowing access to more 'exotic' overseas locations, also represented on screen during the period. Who wouldnt fall in love with the Pacific romance of 'From Here to Eternity'. The 'Road to....' series with Dorothy Lamour also glamourised Pacific adventures and romance with travels to a variety of exotic locations.
