  • Description

    QUEEN ELIZABETH'S DRESS DESIGNER, NORMAN HARTNELL, SHOWED HIS LATEST COLLECTION TO PRINCESS MUNA, WIFE OF KING HUSSEIN OF JORDAN, AT HIS SALON IN LONDON TODAY (WEDNESDAY). THE COLLECTION'S GENERAL LINE DOES NOT DIFFER GREATLY-FROM THAT OF THE HARTNELL COLLECTION LAST YEAR, BUT THE COLOURS ARE MUCH BRIGHTER -- WITH "HOT PINKS", PILLAR-BOX REDS, BRIGHT AQUAMARINES AND EMERALD GREENS APPEARING AGAIN AND AGAIN.

    PRINCESS MUNA IS IN BRITAIN WITH KING HUSSEIN ON A STATE VISIT, AND THE DRESSES SHE'S WEARING IN BRITAIN WERE MADE BY ANOTHER LONDON COUTURIER, RONALD PATERSON. THE COLLECTION SHE SAW TODAY WERE, TO QUOTE-HARTNELL HIMSELF, "LUXURIOUS". HIS SKIRT LENGTH FOR AUTUMN REMAINS THE SAME -- SKIMMING THE KNEE-CAP, AND WAISTS AND BOSOMS KEEP THEIR NATURAL LINE.

    CHANGES IN THE HARTNELL LINE INCLUDE BIGGER COATS, MANY OF THEM WITH WIDE SWINGING BACKS AND-FASTENED-DIAGONALLY. MOST OF THE DAY DRESSES ARE STRAIGHT AND SLEEVELESS, WHILE THE EVENING DRESSES ARE VERY TRADITIONAL AND COVERED WITH SPARKLING BEADS. HARTNELL'S FAVOURITE FUR TRIM IS BEAVER IN NATURAL SHADES.
