  • Description

    PERTEGAZ OF MADRID IS BECOMING A BIG NAME IN THE FASHION WORLD. HIS CREATION WERE SHOWN AT NEW YORK'S WORLDS FAIR THIS YEAR, AND HE HAS BEEN HONOURED FOR HIS WORK BY THE SPANISH GOVERNMENT. OUR CAMERAMAN HAD A LOOK AT SOME OF THE PERTEGAZ FASHIONS IN HIS MADRID SALON.

    THIS COCKTAIL ENSEMBLE IS IN PINK AND BLACK LACE -- A MATERIAL CALLED "CHENILLA VELOUR". THE DESIGN COMES FROM A PAINTING BY THE SPANISH ARTIST, GOYA. AT 500 DOLLARS IT'S ALMOST CHEAP FOR A PERTEGAZ, BUT THEN THERE'S THE COST OF THE HAT, WHICH IS MADE OF PINK AND BLACK OSTRICH FEATHERS. THE LACE BOLERO TOP IS REMOVED TO REVEAL A LOW-CUT BACK. AND ONE THE FRONT -- A PROMINENT BOW.

    HERE'S A FULL LENGTH EVENING DRESS IN "SALADIN GREY". IT'S IN THE CLASSIC INFANTA LINE AND A CLOSE FITTING MAIL JACKET HAS GLITTERING LARMES D'OR (GOLD TEARS). AND ONCE AGAIN PERTEGAZ HAS ADDED THAT BOW.

    AND THIS IS SOMETHING FOR THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE FACING A LONG-COLD WINTER: IT'S AN ICE-BLUE COAT TRIMMED WITH WHITE BEAVER FUR, AND THE DETACHABLE HOOD TOO, IS IN BEAVER FUR. UNDERNEATH THE COAT IS A WHITE SHEATH DRESS IN GOPHERED WOOL -- AND AGAIN THE BOW.

    A PERTEGAZ DRESS CAN COST AS MUCH AS 1,500 DOLLARS BUT THERE'S PLENTY OF BUYERS. ABOUT HALF HIS WORK GOES TO THE UNITED STATES AND A QUARTER WAS BROUGHT BY BRITAIN UNTIL THE IMPORT TAX WAS INTRODUCED.
