    TO SHOW HOW TO KEEP REALLY WARM THIS WINTER THE BRITISH FUR TRADE ASSOCIATION ON SUNDAY PRESENTED WHAT IT CALLED "A FANTASY OF FUR FASHIONS." THE SHOW, THE FIRST GIVEN BY THE ASSOCIATION, FEATURED FURS FROM LAMB TO WOLF AND, ALTHOUGH MEN WERE CATERED FOR, WAS MAINLY AIMED AT SHOWING LADIES JUST HOW FLATTERING AND FEMININE A FUR CAN BE.

    THE WOLF APPEARED WITH THE LAMB WHEN ONE PAIR OF MODELS APPEARED. THE MAN WORE A CAR COAT IN WOLF SKIN AND THE GIRL A BEIGE KALGAN LAMB TROUSER SUIT. THEY WERE ACCOMPANIED BY YET ANOTHER FUR - A LIVE ONE WORN BY A DOG. ANOTHER MAN'S OUTFIT WAS NAMED "DR. ZHIVAGO" AFTER THE HERO OF THE RUSSIAN NOVEL. IT FEATURED A BURGUNDY MOLESKIN COAT TRIMMED WITH MATCHING FOX AND WORN WITH A MOLESKIN HAT.

    THE FEMININENESS OF FUR WAS UNDERLINED IN A CHINESE STYLE TUNIC TOP IN AFRICAN PERSIAN LAMB. IT WAS TRIMMED IN BRAID AND TOPPED OFF WITH A HAT OF PERSIAN LAMB. ALSO STRICTLY FEMININE IS THE MINI-SKIRT AND THAT TOO IS REMEMBERED IN THE FANTASY OF FURS. THIS ONE WAS IN RED AND BLACK WITH A BLACK LEATHER BELT.

    NO FUR FASHION PARADE COULD GO ON WITHOUT MINK AND HERE THE WHITE MINK COAT WAS ADORNED WITH JEWELLED BUTTONS. CIRCULAR WORKED BANDS OF WHITE LEATHER WERE ANOTHER FEATURE OF THE COAT.

    THE PROMOTERS SAY THEIR THEME IS "ELEGANCE" -- AT PRICES RANGING FROM GBP100 TO OVER GBP2,000.
