  • Description


    C/U of the crown of a hat; swathes of organza fabric in a coral colour are draped around the coolie style hat; it looks like a huge fabric rose. C/U of model, Sylvia Shelly, wearing this hat as she raises her head so we can see her face; she holds some pink carnations before her nose. C/U of Meryl McRae with her head tilted forward so we see her white flowerpot style hat, with a width of sheer blue fabric tied around the crown; Meryl raises her head and shows us the view in profile.

    C/U of Sylvia in a black flowerpot-type hat; black tulle is draped around the hat with a pink rose attached to the centre front; Sylvia lowers a huge fur collar from her face. Letitia Adams is seen wearing a pink and white striped oversized straw beret.

    C/U of the turquoise velvet crown of the next hat, with long aigrette feathers coming out from the centre. Letitia raises her head as commentator tells us this one is called 'Seduction'; the feathers frame the face nicely in this very dressy hat; lengthy C/U of the feathers.

    C/U of Sylvia in a blue hat in fine straw with a wide sloping brim and a very large and long feather across the front (the feather looks a bit like a snake skin to me); C/U of the feather.

    Note: on file is a list of the hats by Madame Vernier that this selection comes from; they were originally shown with fashions by Hardy Amies
