  • Description

    THE SETTING IS JAPANESE: THE FABRICS ARE THE RICH, ELABORATE FABRICS OF THE ORIENT. BUT THE MAYOR OF KIRU CITY, JAPAN, WAS SPEAKING IN A SYDNEY DEPARTMENT STORE. MR. ARAKI LED A DELEGATION OF MANUFACTURES FROM KIRYU FOR THE OPENING OF AN EXHIBITION OF THEIR TEXTILES.

    THERE ARE MORE THAN 230-PIECES OF BROCADE ON DISPLAY AT THE EXHIBITION, AND THEY'RE VALUED AT GBP50,000. THE BROCADES ARE NOT INTENDED TO BE USED FOR SOMETHING TO THROW ON AROUND THE HOUSE: THEY'RE DESIGNED FOR BALL GOWNS OR COCKTAIL FROCKS.

    IMAGINATIVE DESIGN AND COMPARATIVELY LOW COST HAVE MADE JAPANESE FABRICS POPULAR IN AUSTRALIA. THIS CREATION BY AN AUSTRALIAN DESIGNER IS IN GREEN SILK.

    A DASHING COMBINATION OF EVENING COAT AND GOWN. THE COAT IS OF A METALLIC GOLD AND BLACK BROCADE WITH A FLOWER PATTERN. THE DRESS IS BLACK SHANTUNG SILK AND SLEEVELESS.
