IN THE MAIN, THE DESIGNERS HAVE KEPT SECRET THEIR CREATIONS FOR THE COMING SEASON, BUT ONE FASHION HOUSE, ELANORA GARNETT, GAVE A LIMITED PREVIEW OF HER COLLECTION FOR 1965.

    ELANORA GARNETT HAS MADE USE OF CAPES IN HALF, THREE-QUARTER AND FULL LENGTHS AND THEY FIND A PLACE IN BOTH DAY AND EVENING WEAR. HER SUITS USE TRADITIONAL FABRICS AND ARE BOTH COLOURFUL AND FLATTERING. THEY'VE BEEN DESIGNED FOR WEAR WITH PRINTED BLOUSES WITH WIDE COLLARS AND SO THE SUIT JACKETS HAVE BEEN CUT WITHOUT COLLARS.

    HER EVENING DRESSES FOLLOW A FEMININE SILHOUETTE AND THERE'S WIDE USE OF COLOUR. THESE RANGE FROM DILUTED REDS, HALF-RIPE TOMATO, ORANGE AND YELLOWS IN ALL SHADES FROM PEACH TO LEMON. FOR A DECORATIVE EFFECT ROSES ARE PINNED AT THE WAIST, AND BELLE EPOQUE FRILLS TRIM MANY OF GARNETT'S GOWNS FOR FORMAL WEAR.
