BA (Hons) Fashion Communication: Fashion History and Theory
This work is an investigation into cross-dressing within WWI prisoner-of-war camps. It aims to show the importance of entertainment, the need for escapism within captivity and how sexuality and gender could be explored under the guise of performance. It also investigates how costume and fashionable dress played a crucial role in constructing gender ideals and representing a normalised version of pre-war society.
