Lee Miller’s photography of British fashion for Vogue during World War 2 was prolific yet few are aware of the full extent of this body of her work.

Many know Lee Miller’s name in connection to her inspirational World War 2 reportage. Few are aware of the multitude of her British fashion images that graced British Vogue’s pages from 1939 to 1944. This beautiful book of wartime fashion addresses her contribution to the fashion industry in these war years and her significant service to the survival of British Vogue magazine.

she [Lee Miller] has borne the whole weight of our studio production through the most difficult period in Brogue’s [British Vogue’s] history’. Wrote Audrey Withers, Lee Miller’s editor at British Vogue, in 1941
