  • Description

    THE EMPHASIS IS ON NATURAL FEMININITY RATHER THAN EYE-CATCHING HIGH HEMLINES IN NEW SEASON FASHIONS FROM TAIWAN. SPECIAL FASHION SHOW IN THE CAPITAL, TAIPEI, AIMED TO PROVE THAT THE LOCAL PRODUCT WAS BETTER THAN STYLES THAT OFTEN LURE WOMEN TO HONGKONG AND TOKYO.

    THE PARADE BROUGHT THE CLASSIC CHINESE CREATION - THE CHIPAO (PRONOUNCED CHEE-POW) BASED ON THE MANCHU STYLE - INTO A MODERN SETTING.

    AND, OF COURSE, WHO NEEDS HIGH HEMLINES WHEN THERE'S THE FAMILIAR SLIT IN THE DESIGN THAT DARES REACH MIDWAY UP THE THIGH?
    FROM THESE FASHIONS, IT'S OBVIOUS THAT THE "LITTLE GIRL" LOCK IS MAKING NO HEADWAY IN TAIWAN, WHERE IT SEEMS THAT WOMEN ARE PRACTICALLY POURED INTO SKIN-TIGHT STYLES. HOWEVER, CHECKED PATTERNS ARE AS POPULAR AS IN THE UNITED STATES.

    TEXTILES ARE THE BIGGEST MONEY-EARNER AFTER SUGAR IN TAIWAN'S EXPORT ECONOMY. DURING THREE FOUR-YEAR ECONOMIC PLANS, TEXTILE PRODUCTION HAS INCREASED NEARLY 500 PER CENT.

    FORTY PER-CENT OF TAIWAN'S TEXTILE IS SOLD ABROAD, THE BULK OF IT IN YARD GOODS, WITH GARMENTS GAINING GROUND.

    AMERICAN AND CANADIAN BUYERS ACCOUNT FOR MUST OF THE 61 MILLION DOLLARS IN SALES.
