Background: Soviet fashion designers are launching their first fashion parade in London with a large range of clothes designed for the modern woman. They are being shown on Thursday. Three of the models who will show the clothes arrived in London today.
The show is to be staged at a large London restaurant and includes more than one hundred dresses and suits. It is being sponsored by a Soviet trade delegation now in London and they hope to persuade British fashion stores to buy them.
The Soviet fashions will be mainly summer wear with the accent on colour. Cotton is the principal fabric and will include shift dresses, two-piece suits -- with Soviet-tyle mini skirts, about one inch above the knee.
Three of the Soviet Union's top models -- the first of five -- arrived in London today. They were Nina Vagina, aged 28, Larisa Zolazova, 25, and Ala Tchernousova, 20.
