    SILKS ARE AGAIN POPULAR AND A BEIGE SILK TUSSORE DRESS FOLLOWING THE SLIM, CASUAL LINE, FOUND THROUGHOUT THE COLLECTION, WAS WARMLY APPLAUDED BY THE AUDIENCE.

    BACK TO TWEEDS - AND ANOTHER MODEL, APPROPRIATELY CALLED "DOTTIE", HAS A PALE BLUE TWEED FRENCHWOOL COAT.THE DRESS, WITH THREE-QUARTER LENGTH SLEEVES, IS COVERED WITH COIN SPOTS - WHICH ARE ECHOED IN THE LINING OF THE COAT.

    "MELISSA" IS A SHANTUNG DRESS DESIGNED WITH THE YOUNGER SET IN MIND.IT HAS A WIDE, SQUARE NECKLINE AND A SLIGHTLY FLARING SKIRT.ON THIS MODEL HOWEVER, IT WAS THE HAT THAT ATTRACTED MOST OF THE ATTENTION.

    FOR A VERY SPECIAL OCCASION THERE'S A DRESS IN BLACK FINE CHANTILLY LACE.THE WIDE NECKLINE HERE IS EMPHASISED WITH A NARROW BLACK SATIN RIBBON - AND THE LONG TIGHT SLEEVES HAVE ATTRACTIVE FRILLS AT THE WRISTS.

    OSTRICH FEATHERS DECORATE THE HEM OF "SEVILLA".THE DRESS I SIN BLACK CHIFFON.

    A SLEEVELESS COAT IN DUBLIN IN FEBRUARY IS A RARE SIGHT INDEED - BUT IN THE COMING SUMMER IT MIGHT BE JUST THE THING.ESPECIALLY IF ITS WORN, AS IRENE GILBERT SUGGESTS, OVER A LONG WHITE COTTON SKIRT.

    A BODICE EMBROIDERED IN SOFT YELLOW AND GOLD IS THE MAIN ATTRACTION OF "ORPHELIA", WHICH HAS A LONG WHITE ORGANZA DRESS WITH A FLOATING PLEATED SKIRT.

    FOR EVENING WEAR, IRENE GILBERT RECOMMENDS A LONG, SLIM DRESS IN PALEST SHANTUNG.ON THIS MODEL, GIANT WHITE DAISIES EMPHASISE THE LOW NECKLINE.
