1940s Fashions

The wartime decade was a challenging time when paper dolls offered a welcome escape into one’s imagination. Fashion history during this period was interesting, reflecting the utilitarian styles, the strong shoulders and some frivolous accessories. Paper dolls of this time are both reprints of genuine vintage books and/or newly created ‘40s subjects including military uniforms, romantic brides, teen-agers and children. These years reflect the peak popularity of movies and glamorous stars. No wonder the '40s are considered "Golden Age of Paper Dolls."
