    Background: MOSCOW WOMEN HAD A GLIMPSE OF THEIR MINI-SKIRTED FASHION FUTURE YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) AT THE OPENING OF THE INTERNATIONAL CLOTHING FAIR IN MOSCOW'S SOKOLNIKI PARK. EXHIBITORS AT THE FAIR CAME FROM 26 COUNTRIES.

    THE GREATEST SURPRISES CAME FROM THE EASTERN EUROPEAN COUNTRIES -- POLAND, HUNGARY, CZECHOSLOVAKIA, RUMANIA, EVEN THE SOVIET UNION ITSELF. THEY ALL RAISED THEIR HEMLINES TO STARTLINGLY PROGRESSIVE WESTERN LENGTHS.

    THOUSANDS OF WOMEN CROWDED MANNEQUINS MODELLING FASHIONS CONTRIBUTED BY MORE THAN 1,000 MANUFACTURERS. MANY OF THE WOMEN CARRIED SKETCHING PADS AND PENCILS.

    WESTERN DESIGNERS CONTRIBUTED A GALACTIC RANGE OF SHOCKING PINK, LUMINOUS GREEN AND BRIGHT LAVENDER OUTFITS. RAINCOATS, TROUSER SUITS AND MINISKIRTS WERE THERE TO TAKE THE EYE OF MOSCOW WOMANHOOD AND TEMPT THE POCKET OF SOVIET OFFICIALDOM.

    ONE BRITISH FIRM, WARY OF OFFENDING SOVIET SENSIBILITIES, DECOROUSLY LOWERED ITS HEMLINES. BUT ELSEWHERE A SOVIET EXHIBITOR, ANXIOUS TO BE THOUGHT PROGRESSIVE, HAD RAISED ITS SKIRTS TO TWO OR THREE INCHES (FIVE OR SEVEN CMS) ABOVE KNEE-LENGTH.
