Bethan Bide, Beatrice Behlen and David Gilbert are organising a conference at the Museum of London in September 2015 on dress in the period immediately after World War II. Recognising the recent surge of interest in austerity aesthetics across contemporary culture, the two-day conference aims to explore the effect of post-war austerity on the appearance of people and cities.
