  • Description

    The Airport Hotel at Frankfurt in West Germany was the scene of a Jet-Set fashion show on Tuesday (11 September), which was called "Non-stop Flight to Fur Fashions 1973/73."
    It provided the German fur trade with an opportunity to show some of its more trendy design.s These included furs that had been dyed in such startling colours as violet, red and blue.

    The conservative attitude that regarded a fur coat as a long-term investment is apparently a thing of the past, and the German manufacturers are well abreast of London and Paris in making fashionably styled "fun" furs for the younger set.

    SYNOPSIS: A hotel at Frankfurt Airport in West Germany, provided an unusual backdrop for a fashion show entitled "Non-stop Flight to Fur Fashions 1973/74." A warm autumn day is no usually the occasion for wearing furs, but the models courageously paraded around without once losing their "cool", looking almost as relaxed as the audience.

    It was an opportunity for the German fur trade to show off its more trendy designs, and a rabbit cape dyed violet, set the tone of much that was to follow. Nowadays, many fashion furs are aimed at the younger set, sand this red and blue jacket in shaved mink was described by the designer as being for a sporting type.

    The audience -- who may not have looked very sports-minded -- evidently considered it was a winner.

    These evening mink jackets were another success, though even mink is not sacred to today's "way-out" fashion designers. The conservative attitude that regarded a fur coat as an investment for years to come, seems to have gone for ever. Fur is now just material to be used for making clothes -- even an evening dress.

    The German manufacturers were out to impress their audience that they are well abreast of London and Paris in making fun furs for the younger trend-setter.
