    London.

    Various good shots of fashion models preening and applying makeup backstage at Ciro's nightclub. They are about to rehearse a fashion show before the guests arrive. The nightclub is still being prepared for the show and a man vacuums the catwalk.

    The models practise walking along the catwalk in their outfits. Waiters are still laying the tables. M/S of a fashion industry woman looking harassed. The show is an Anglo-French affair showing 40 Jacques Griffe designs that have been flown over from Paris along with the models.

    Several shots of jewels lent by the Goldsmiths and Silversmiths Company of London for the occasion. A necklace is put on a model. C/U of feet being put into evening sandals and shoes. Mannequins are helped on with jackets.

    Several shots during the actual show of models parading about before the audience. The harassed woman now stands at a microphone, looking rather regal in a tiara and evening gown.
