Following on from a successful run in London, the popular Fashion on the Ration: 1940s Street Style exhibition comes to IWM North.

From ‘onesies’ to wear in the air raid shelter to jewellery created from aeroplane parts, Fashion on the Ration looks at how fashion survived and even flourished under the strict rules of rationing in 1940s Britain, often in new and unexpected ways.
