Wallis Simpson’s Wedding Ensemble, 1937

Designed by Mainbocher

A defect in the stability of the dye has caused the dress to lose its iconic “Wallis” blue color.

Fashion in 1942 

The War Production Board (WPB) was established in 1942 as a government agency  to regulate the production of materials and fuel during WWII in the United States. In a sweeping order affecting all women’s and girls’ outer wearing apparel, the WPB decreed to what lengths and widths dresses, skirts, coats, suits, sleeves, belts and hems might go. Categories exempt from the restrictions were infants apparel (age 1 to 4 yrs), bridal Gowns, maternity Dresses, vestments for religious orders and burial gowns.

Anthony Fokker (b. 6 april 1890/ d. 23 december 1939) a.k.a. The Flying Dutchman. He was a Dutch aviation pioneer and skilled pilot. Sure, he might have been an unscrupulous businessman, but he did put in his two cents in aviation technology and designed planes flown by The Red Baron, Manfried von Richtofen (another worthy history crush!), himself.
