    Background: The fashion house of Christian Dior has unveiled its autumn collection in Britain with a soft, elegant theme that's become the hallmark of the French based designers. The London showing also revealed that the house is staying with the Paris look for the coming season -- very light and feminine, and very French in cut.

    SYNOPSIS: The new collection is based on taffeta, chiffon, lace -- and georgette, here in a feather print. The price GBP350 sterling (GBP600 US dollars).

    A trouser suit in very light green tweed, softened by a matching crepe de chine blouse. Much the same price at GBP375 ($650 US dollars).

    For the evening, black velvet and lace off the shoulder. It can be worn either bare-shouldered, or with a transparent black lacy ruff -- originally high fashion in the era of Queen Elizabeth the First, and making its reappearance in the silver jubilee year of Queen Elizabeth the Second. Around GBP400 sterling ($740 US dollars).

    A little more expensive at GBP500 ($570 US dollars) is a three-piece black knit blouson with pleated skirt, complemented by a blouse in black and fuschia print. Very soft, very elegant, and very Christian Dior -- just the outfit for theatre premieres or high-society dinners.

    A little less formal - a two-piece in red printed crepe de chine at GBP475 sterling ($830 US dollars). Yes, it is a two-piece, despite a deceptive gathering of the blouse over the skirt.
