    Background: CHRISTIAN DIOR'S LONDON AUTUMN AND WINTER COLLECTION WENT ON PARADE TODAY (WEDNESDAY) BEFORE A DISTINGUISHED AUDIENCE AT THE CITY'S DORCHESTER HOTEL. THE PARADE WAS IN AID OF THE UNITED NATIONS ASSOCIATION.

    FIFTY NEW DESIGNS WERE SHOWN - INCLUDING TEN FURS.

    BLACK WAS A PROMINENT COLOUR, AND ONE VERY SMART MODEL WAS CALLED "GARDE CHASSE". THIS WAS A BLACK AND BEIGE HUNTING SUIT, TRIMMED WITH BLACK VELVET.

    "DAIKIRI" ON THE OTHER HAND IS AN ALL WHITE CLOQUE DRESS, WITH A SATIN JACKET.

    FOR FIRST NIGHT'S AT THE THEATRE, THERE WAS A LONG OLIVE GREEN SILK FAILLE EMBROIDERED EVENING DRESS. IT'S CALLED "CHAMBORD".

    AN OUTFIT COMPRISING A GOLD LACE BLOUSE AND SKIRT OVER GOLD LAME TROUSERS WOULD MAKE AN EXCELLENT COCKTAIL DRESS. CHRISTIAN DIOR CALLS THIS ONE "MAGICIENNE".

    ANOTHER ONE FOR THE THEATRE IS "EGLANTINE" - A STEM GREEN MATELASSE SUIT WITH PINK SATIN BLOUSE. IT'S WORN WITH A PILLBOX IN MATCHING GREEN.

    "TULIPE NOIR" IS A WHITE CREPE BLOUSE, WITH BLACK VELVET TROUSERS. THE TROUSERS HOWEVER ARE NOT IN KEEPING WITH CONVENTIONAL IDEAS - THEY ARE FLOUNCED AT THE ANKLE.

    A MODEL THAT DREW A GASP FROM THE AUDIENCE WAS "VIZILLE" - A DARING EVENING DRESS WITH A DEEP V - NECKED GOWN IN RED SILK CREPE.

    FOR THE FASHION-CONSCIOUS WOMAN, THIS PARADE GAVE A PREVIEW OF THINGS TO COME FROM THE WORLD-FAMOUS HOUSE OF CHRISTIAN DIOR....
