  • Description

    A YOUNG ENGLISH DESIGNER HAS USED COMPONENTS OF THE ABANDONED TSR-2 AIRCRAFT PROJECT IN WAY-OUT NEW FASHIONS WHICH WENT ON DISPLAY IN LONDON RECENTLY. DRESSES WITH NAMES LIKE "DEFENCE MECHANISM", "HIGH REVOLUTION" AND "SHOCKS AWAY" INCORPORATE A VAST RANGE OF BITS AND PIECES FROM THE AIRCRAFT.

    FALCON STEWART OF PIMLICO WAS SUFFICIENTLY INSPIRED BY THE APPEARANCE OF THE AIRCRAFT COMPONENTS TO BASE HIS AUTUMN FASHION SHOWING AROUND THE TSR-2 THEME. PRINTED CIRCUITS, PIECES OF HYDRAULIC HOSE PIPE, ELECTRONIC PANELS AND RESISTORS HAVE ALL BEEN INCORPORATED INTO THE DESIGNS.

    FOR DEFENCE EXPERTS, THE NEW DESIGNS REPRESENT A POOR RETURN ON THEIR ORIGINAL GBP200 MILLION TSR-2 INVESTMENT, BUT FOR STEWART, THEY COULD MEAN THE BEGINNING OF FASHION'S DRAVE NEW WORLD.
