  • Description

    AN ASTONISHING VARIETY OF GARMENTS WERE DISPLAYED IN LONDON TODAY (MONDAY) AT A PREVIEW OF THE WORLD'S LARGEST LEATHER AND SUEDE FASHION SHOW. MORE THAN 1,000 RETAIL BUYERS ARE EXPECTED TO SEE THE SHOW AND PALACE LARGE ORDERS FOR CLOTHES MADE IN A MATERIAL WHICH IS IMMENSELY POPULAR IN BRITAIN.

    BUYERS SAW THAT LEATHER AND SUEDE HAS SOMETHING EXCITING TO OFFER THE FASHION CONSCIOUS WOMAN OR MAN. THE VERSATILITY OF LEATHER WAS SHOWN IN A WIDE RANGE OF CLOTHES. THERE WERE SKI AND SKATING OUTFITS, SPORTS SUITS: YET BREAKING NEW GROUND COCKTAIL DRESSES AND THEATRE COATS, EVENING GOWNS AND PLEATED SKIRTS.

    LEATHER HAS BECOME POPULAR IF ONLY BECAUSE RECENTLY EVOLVED DYEING PROCESSES NOW GIVE THE MATERIAL A KALEIDOSCOPE OF COLOUR FROM VIBRANT PRIMARY COLOURS TO DELICATE PASTELS. MANY OF THE SKINS CAN EVEN WASHED, WHILE DRY-CLEANING IS A MUCH MORE SIMPLE PROCESS NOW THROUGH NEW TANNING TECHNIQUES.

    SHEEP PROVIDE THE MAIN SOURCE OF FASHION LEATHER. A BREED OF SOUTH AFRICAN SHEEP WHICH GROWS HAIR RATHER THAN WOOL IS PARTICULARLY GOOD FOR SOFT DRAPING GARMENTS.
