Civilian Clothing

Civilian clothing of the time period we portray, looked much the same in every European country.
The ideal partner for every creative German woman was the Goldene Schnitt 

Magazines like this one were very popular in the late 30´s untill the rationing of material

Towards the end of war, rationing made it nearly impossible for Mrs Average to renew her wardrobe with every season. "Make do and mend" was the philosophy.
Old bedding, curtains, table cloths and even tea towels were transformed into clothes.
Furs were hardly seen anymore, as most of them were donated to the Winterhilfswerk and thus went to the Eastern Front.

Here some pictures giving you an insight of just "ordinary, everyday Germans".

We are a female group ran by women of WARS providing an opportunity for all women regardless of group to work together. To work with FRAU or indeed become a member or affiliate, we only require you have public liablity insurance paid to a group/association and can prove this on request. If you do, then we are happy to work with you. We portray all aspects of Third Reich womens roles, from mother to DRK to Reichspost. We attend many shows country wide as well as in Europe and Russia. There is no age limit, but we ask that hair colour, piercings etc. are authentic or removed. That make up is kept to a minimum and that you strive to improve your impression/s with time. We are a non-political historical group. We do not support racism, intolerance or other extreme views. We do not seek to glorify the Second World War or extreme political ideology.
