  • Description

    THE ASSOCIATED FASHION DESIGNERS (AFD) OF LONDON -- THE GROUP THAT ENCOMPASSES THE TOP-TEN DESIGNERS IN THE READY-TO-WEAR COUTURE FIELD -- ARE PRESENTING THEIR 1970 SPRING AND SUMMER COLLECTIONS TO FOREIGN BUYERS THIS WEEK (SUNDAY 26 TO TUESDAY 28 OCTOBER).

    THE CLOTHES SHOWN WILL BE IN THE SHOPS AFTER THE NEW YEAR -- AND PRICES WILL RANGE FROM GBP5 TO GBP50 (12 TO 120 DOLLARS). AND, SINCE MANY OF THE DESIGNS INCORPORATE PARIS HAUTE COUTURE FEATURES, THESE PRICES ARE SAID TO COMPARE VERY FAVOURABLY WITH THOSE PRESENTED BY OTHER COUNTRIES.

    AS THE AFD ITSELF PUTS IT: "TOP FASHION FOR THE MASSES, THAT'S WHAT THIS SHOW IS ALL ABOUT. THE UNMISTAKEABLE COURREGES LOOK, IN MATERIALS THAT CAN BE THROWN INTO THE WASHING MACHINE, AND AT HIGH STREET SHOP PRICES."
    MAXIS - WHICH THE AFD PRESENTED EVEN BEFORE ST. LAURENT'S IMPACT, COLLECTION LAST YEAR -- ARE AGAIN TO THE FORE IN SEVERAL OF THE GROUP'S PRESENTATIONS.

    ANOTHER BIG FEATURE -- WASHABLE WOOL JERSEY -- AS FEATURED PROMINENTLY BY SIMON MASSEY.
