    Titles read: "EVENING WEAR".

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Various shots of mannequins modelling the latest evening gowns designed by British fashion designer Clive Duncan.

    The models seem to be arriving at a cocktail party. They stand around a small bar and are served drinks by Pamela Sale. Lady Patricia McDonald wears a chiffon velvet gown, trimmed with cascading wallflowers, with a stiffened skirt to give a semi-crinoline effect. Pamela wears an Empire line white frock of hand-woven wool with a deep scoop neckline. She also wears a black velvet choker.

    Jean Hillsdon wears a pannier pleated gown of satin with an accordion pleated train. Lynne Jennings wears a gown of shadow-lace over satin.

    Good footage of evening wear that looks inspired by Victorian fashions.
