  • Description

    FASHION BUYERS FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD ARE IN ROME, THE CAPITAL CITY OF ITALY, WHERE ON JANUARY 10TH THE INTERNATIONAL SPRING AND SUMMER FASHION SEASON OPENED WITH A RIOT OF COLOUR, FRESH IDEAS AND EXCITING MATERIALS.THE ROME SHOWS, REGARDED BY FASHION EXPERTS AS AN ESSENTIAL APPETISER TO THE PARIS COLLECTIONS TO BE SHOWN AT THE END OF JANUARY, ALSO MARK THE FIRST ROUND IN THE 1962 BATTLE FOR FASHION SUPREMACY BETWEEN ROME AND FLORENCE.

    THE ROME SHOWS LAST FOR THREE DAYS BUT FROM THE START IT WAS OBVIOUS THAT THE COUNTRY THAT CAN PRODUCE THE GLAMOUR OF GINA LOLLOBRIGIDA OR THE ALLURE OF SOPHIA LOREN HAS THE FASHION DESIGNERS TO DRESS SUCH INTERNATIONAL FILM ACTRESSES.

    RENALTO BALESTRA PRESENTED A COLLECTION OF GREAT CHARM BOTH FOR DAY WEAR AND FOR THE MORE FORMAL OCCASION.FILM TAKEN ON JANUARY 11TH SHOWS TWO OF HIS MODELS WEARING SUITS.ONE MODEL WEARS A BROWN TWEED SUIT WITH A BROWN SILK CREPE BLOUSE WHICH TIES IN A BOLD, BUT ATTRACTIVE BOW, AT THE BACK.THE OTHER MODEL WEARS A TURQUOISE SHANTUNG SUIT WITH GAY MOTIFS ON THE SLEEVES AND COLLAR.BOTH HATS, MATCHING THE SUITS TO PERFECTION, WERE ALSO DESIGNED BY BALESTRA.

    AT LEAST SEVEN WOMEN DOMINATE THE HIGH FASHION STAGE IN ROME.CARLA CENTINARO, MOTHER OF TWO TEENAGERS, IS ONE OF THEM.HER CLOTHES WERE AMONG THE PRETTIEST OF THE COLLECTIONS.SHE USED CHIFFON FOR HER COCKTAIL DRESS WITH "GOOSE BEAK YELLOW" AS THE PREDOMINANT COLOUR.THE ELEGANT COAT FOR WEAR WITH THE DRESS IS MADE FROM SHANTUNG.CENTINARO'S COLLECTION, FOR WHICH SHE ALSO DESIGNED THE HATS, CONCLUDED WITH TWO STRIKING EVENING GOWNS.A RED CHIFFON EVENING GOWN FEATURED BLACK AND WHITE BODICE WITH A SPECTACULAR RHINESTONE PENDANT PINNED TO THE LEFT SHOULDER.THE SECOND EVENING GOWN WAS MADE FROM YELLOW RAFIA STRAW LACE.

    FOR SHEER BREATH-TAKING APPEAL AND HIGH FASHION OUR CAMERAMAN RETURNED TO RENATO BALESTRA'S COLLECTION TO RECORD A LACE EVENING COAT AND DRESS EMBROIDERED WITH BEADS.THIS CREATION, WHICH THRILLED SO MANY BUYERS, IS ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE BOLD, CONFIDENT CHALLENGE THROWN DOWN BY THE FASHION DESIGNERS OF ROME.
