Spring sunshine in Tokyo brought an international spring-summer fashion show to a large department store. The collection was by Dior, the accent was on the "Slim Look", and the very attractive models represented Miss Austria, Miss Italy, Miss Germany, Miss France and Miss Europe.
Among the Japanese models was Miss Akiko Kojima - "Miss Universe of 1959" - who looked suitably alluring in both day dresses and kimonos. The old-style kimono is said to be right back in fashion in Japan.
Dresses displayed were mainly of shantung, crepe de chine, soft wool, tulle, lace and crepe organdie.
