Friends of the Merrill-Cazier Library Spring Lecture: Make do and Mend

Wednesday, March 29, 2023, 7:00 pm | LIB 101

Make Do and Mend

Join us for the Friends of the Merrill-Cazier Library Spring Lecture! Nancy Hills, Head of USU's Theatre Costume Design Program, will deliver Make do and Mend: The Impact of the Second World War on the Style and Acquisition of Clothing on March 29th at 7:00 p.m.

Immediate, basic human needs include food, clothing, and shelter. When societies engage in war these necessities are compromised. It might seem irreverent to consider fashion in the context of conflict, but the experience of war and the upheaval it foists on society is always reflected in the way society attires itself.
