Incarceration did not lessen the importance of clothing to those living in the camps. In fact, it could be argued that the preoccupation with fashion was heightened by confinement, demonstrated by the prevalence of fashion drawings in the Gould-Vogel Collection as well as the documented popularity of sewing and design classes.
In fact, according to the records of the WRA, sewing was such a popular activity at Rohwer that during the process of closing the center, sewing machines and sewing classes were considered “a deterrent to relocation” and all but one were removed by August 1945.
