Background: Here's a preview of a fashion show that tomorrow will be seen on both sides of the Atlantic. The "Clive Set" collection will be featured first in a London Hotel at 10 in the morning. The models will leave London by jet for New York and at 8:30 in the evening - Eastern Standard Time - will give another show on the Queen Elizabeth in New York harbour. It's believed to be the first time that a collection has been presented on both sides of the Atlantic on the same day.
The fashions for spring 68 feature almost every colour and every material. They're aimed at the one 25 age group and Clive, an uncompromising advocate of the mini-skirt, clearly envisages a young look for everyone.
The "Clive Set" clothes are described as being young without being kooky, and simple without being dull. Suits have zip-fronted shirt jackets and slightly flared skirts. Coats are narrow, double-breasted, with slightly standaway or roll collars. Dresses are softly belted. For later day wear the Clive Set suggests lounging pyjama dresses in silk voile and Banlon.
This is the first ready-to-wear collection designed by Clive. Born in 1933 in London, Clive worked with Michael, Lachasse, and Cavanagh before setting up on his won on his 30th birthday. In the summer of 1964 he was invited to become the youngest member of the Incorporated Society of London Fashion Designers. Recently he has been working on clothes for the stars of important films.
