During WWII, fashion designer Norman Hartnell was subject to the government trading & rationing restrictions as everyone else; the number of buttons, fastenings & amount of embroideries were all rationed.Clients ordered clothes within the restrictions or had existing clothes altered. This also applied to The Queen, who appeared in her best possible clothes in bombed areas around the country. Hartnell received her endorsement to design elegant & innovative clothes conforming to strict rationing.
