  • Description

    THINGS STARTED TO MOVE IN THE SHOP OF WINDOWS OF ONE OF LONDON'S FAMOUS DEPARTMENTAL STORES TODAY (FRIDAY).HUNDREDS OF MEN GATHERED OUTSIDE THE STORE OF WILLIAM WHITELEYS, IN BAYSWATER, WEST LONDON, AS GROUP OF MODELS PARADED THE LATEST FASHIONS FROM -- THE STORE WINDOWS.

    THE DISPLAY COINCIDED WITH A SPELL OF BRIGHT SPRING-LIKE WEATHER IN BRITAIN FOLLOWING THE INTENSELY COLD WEATHER OF JANUARY AND FEBRUARY.

    FIRST PART OF THE DISPLAY WAS DEVOTED TO CORSETS AND FOUNDATION GARMENTS, SHOWN BY TWO YOUNG MODELS.THIS WAS ENOUGH TO ATTRACT A CROWD OUTSIDE THE STORE UNEQUALLED SINCE BEFORE CHRISTMAS.

    THEN CAME THE DISPLAY OF SUMMER SWIM SUITS -- SIMPLY CUT AND BRIGHTLY COLOURED.FOR MOST BRITISH MALES, THIS WAS THEIR FIRST OPPORTUNITY TO SEE SUCH FASHIONS SINCE SEPTEMBER -- AND FOR ONE MAN SHOWN IN OUR FILM, IT WAS JUST TOO MUCH.

    THERE WERE ALSO DISPLAYS OF THE OTHER SPRING AND SUMMER FASHIONS WHICH ARE NOW TO BE SEEN IN THE LONDON STORE.
