  • Description

    Buyers from the major fashion capitals have flocked to New York for the annual showing of spring hat fashions.

    The emphasis this year was on giant-brimmed straw hats, most with brightly coloured scarfs of bandanna accessories. The hat-makers hope the comeback of the shirt dress -- forecast to displace pants as the big fashion seller this year -- also means the comeback of face-framing straw brims, set off with colourful floral cloth decoration.

    SYNOPSIS: The traditional symbol of spring fashion was in full display last week in New York with the showing of spring hats.

    Buyers from all the major fashion houses turned up to see what stylish women will be wearing to top off their new spring outfits this year. What they saw was the large-brimmed look.

    The designers are emphasizing the straw hat this year, with accessories -- like floppy cloth poppies -- to flatter the simple shirt dresses couturiers hope will be this year's big fashion seller.

    Hats are going back to traditional designs like this Australian style in white poplin. They are getting the coordinate treatment too, such as this large hat with a bandanna and matching poncho.

    The 'newsboy' look in bright yellow does double duty, shading the eyes and protecting the hair.

    Despite the new trends, however, more classic styles are still popular with the buyers.

    Felt, ??? traditional autumn and winter fabric, gets dressed up in spring colours this year. But moving into new styles hasn't hurt the designers' sense of humour. The frivolous novelty hat shared the spotlight.
