  • Description

    FOR THE PAST FEW WEEKS FRENCH DRESS DESIGNERS HAVE BEEN REVEALING WHAT THE WELL-DRESSED WOMAN WILL BE WEARING THIS SPRING AND SUMMER. NOW, IT HAS BEEN THE TURN OF FRENCH LINGERIE MANUFACTURERS TO SHOW WHAT WILL COMPLIMENT THE FASHIONS FOR THE COMING SEASONS.

    THE PUBLIC ARE BEING ADMITTED TO THE SHOWS WHICH EACH DAY PRESENT A DIFFERENT COLLECTION OF GARMENTS. THIS COLLECTION WAS SHOWN AT THE EXHIBITION PARK ON SATURDAY, (FEBRUARY 6), AND THE SHOWING WON THE APPROVAL OF AUDIENCE.

    MANY OF THE GARMENTS HAVE BEEN DESIGNED TO WEAR WITH THE NEW SEASONS FASHIONS. THE BRASSIERES ARE MADE WITH STRAPS THAT SIT WELL AWAY FROM THE NECK AND THEY ARE MOULDED TO FORM A DEEP U-SHAPE AT THE BACK. THIS ENABLES THE WOMAN TO WEAR THE PLUNGING V-SHAPED BACKS FAVOURED BY MANY DESIGNERS THIS YEAR.

    FIRST ITEM ON SHOW WAS A BRASSIERE CALLED 'MISS TOP'. IT'S MADE OF STRETCH FABRIC AND FEATURES THE DEEP BACK. ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF 'MISS TOP' COMES IN A COMBINATION WITH STRETCH PANTS, WHICH ACCORDING TO THE MAKER ARE AS COMFORTABLE AND AS FORM-FITTING AS A BATHING SUIT.

    NEXT CAME 'DIAPHANE' THAT THE DESIGNER SAID NO WELL DRESSED WOMAN COULD AFFORD NOT TO WEAR. THEN THERE WAS 'ISEULT', ANOTHER COMBINATION WHICH WAS HEAVILY EMBROIDERED. TERMED ELEGANT AND ENCHANTING, IT IS SAID TO KEEP THE FIGURE TRIM BUT STILL ALLOW FREE MOVEMENT.

    FOR THE NEW SEASON'S COCKTAIL DRESSES THERE'S 'CLEMENTINE', A COMBINATION BRASSIERE AND SHORT SLIP. THEN, TURNING TO A LATER HOUR OF THE DAY, 'VAMP' DREW SOME ADMIRATION FROM THE AUDIENCE FOR ITS SHEEP LUXURY. IT'S A FULL LENGTH NIGHTDRESS WITH THE BODICE TRIMMED WITH CALAIS LACE. ANOTHER ENSEMBLE IS 'PRIMEROSE', A NIGHT GOWN OF RICH LACE OVER A NIGHTDRESS OF A FAIRLY SIMPLE LINE.
