Week Two: A Period of Change (1870-1950)

Activity 2: Making a Fashion Statement
In the years following World War II, things slowly returned to normal in New Zealand. Soldiers returned home and settled back into regular life; and national sporting teams, like the New Zealand cricket team, got back together and started playing matches again. In the late 1940s, men and women would go to watch these events, men wearing hats and suits and women wearing dresses, hats, and gloves.

Compare the pictures of common clothing from the late 1940s to what you wear now (i.e. in 2017). Are they similar or are they quite different?

On your blog tell us which of the two styles you prefer and why. The pictures above were taken over 65 years ago! What do you think people will be wearing 65 years from now?

The Future cloths like the example down there.You can take a look if you want. So the Future cloths I think we will wear those.In the future.

  1. Kia Ora Hazel,

    It is great to see that you have completed yet another activity for the Summer Learning Journey programme. Good for you!! I enjoyed reading this activity as it reminded me of just how differently we dress now compared to one hundred years ago. Can you imagine going to school in a long dress with a corset? I think that it would have been really uncomfortable to be a girl living in the 1800s. I'm very glad that I had the chance to grow up in the 1990s and early 2000s and was able to wear anything that I liked (including pants and shorts, if I wanted)!

    What is your favourite style of clothing to wear? Do you like wearing jeans and t-shirts or do you prefer a dress? These days I tend to prefer a simple sundress...

    Bye for now,

    Rachel :)
