  • Description

    ABOUT 200 BLIND WOMEN FROM ALL DISTRICTS OF WEST GERMANY ATTENDED A FASHION SHOW IN DUSSELDORF YESTERDAY. THE WOMEN HAD TO ASSESS THE FASHIONS BY TOUCH, BUT THEY WERE GIVEN GOOD INDICATION OF TEXTURE AND STYLING.

    THE FASHION SHOW WAS ORGANISED JOINTLY BY THE NORTH RHINE BLIND SOCIETY AND THE INTERNATIONAL WOOL SECRETARIAT. ALL THE FASHIONS ON DISPLAY WERE OF WOOL.

    AS THE FASHIONS WERE MODELLED A DESCRIPTION WAS BROADCAST OVER A PUBLIC ADDRESS SYSTEM. THE MODELS MOVED THROUGH THE TABLETS, AND THE WOMEN COULD TOUCH THE FABRIC AND HAVE THE MAIN POINTS OF STYLE POINTED OUT TO THEM.

    THE VISITORS RANGED IN AGE FROM 17 AND 18 TO 71. THEY WERE BROUGHT TO THE HOTEL IN DUSSELDORF IN SPECIALLY CHARTERED BUSES.
