  • Description

    Claudio Tonini, one of Italy's fashion designers for the Younger Woman, presented Dec 2 the "Crown Line" in his Winter collection.

    The Crown Line is emphasised by the waist bands of his models. The designer while not actually going against the Imperial Line, presented by another Milanese designer last September (Prod 9347) to accent high waists, does not emphasise the sack waist line. If anything Signor Tonini favours feminine curves.

    Here are the models shown:-
    FAVOURITE - Camel hair cape and dress with ocelot collar;
    PICCADILLY - Sleeveless dress and mantle (dress of white wool with white chamois belt. The mantle with black fox collar, patent leather belt);
    VIA VENETO - (Named after one of Rome's more fashionable streets) Mantle and dress. Dress of wool with wide fringed belt, camel hair mantle;
    ENCHANTMENT - Cocktail dress (two pieces) upper part originally embroidered;
    NIGHT AT MONTECARLO - Semi-formal dress with embroidered upper part, mantle lined with dress material;
    WARSAW CONCERT - Evening dress in faille silk embroidered with tulle, mantle of velvet;
    IMPERIAL WALTZ - Evening dress chiffon silk, gold belt, black moire silk mantle;
    MINUET - Evening dress in organdy, silk with embroideries, the upper part encrusted with rhinestones;
    RAPSODY IN BLUE - Evening gown (two pieces) silk gown with embroideries, reserved for upper part of dress;
