dc.description.abstract <p>A study of conservation efforts in the United States during World War II (1942-45) can provide useful insights into how consumers strived to conserve and prolong limited resources. This paper seeks to provide a historical perspective on sustainable fashion by inspecting the approach to waste management during World War II. To explore this topic, we will look into advice literature and educational materials aimed at consumers to adapt to style and textile restrictions. The results of this study will provide proscriptive advice and insights gained from this historical perspective.</p>
