  • Description

    A PREVIEW YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) FOR THE BRITISH NURSING EXHIBITION AND CONFERENCE OPENING IN LONDON TODAY WAS A SHOW OF THE LATEST WEAR FOR NURSES' A TROUSER SUIT UNIFORM.

    TROUSER SUITS, OF COURSE, ARE NOTHING NEW FOR GIRLS AND THE "NEW LOOK" FOR BRITISH NURSES IS SIMPLY AND EXTENSION OF CURRENT FASHION IDEAS.

    THE SUITS ARE OF WHITE, MAN-MADE FIBRE AND COTTON. THOUGH A DEPARTURE FROM TRADITION, THE DESIGNERS SAY THE UNIFORMS BRING A PRACTICAL AND FEMININE ANSWER TO THE NEEDS OF MODERN NURSING.

    THE DESIGNERS ALSO ADMIT THE SUITS ARE BOUND TO CREATE CONTROVERSY BUT THEY SAY THEY'LL WAIT FIVE YEARS, IF NECESSARY, FOR THEM TO GAIN ACCEPTANCE.

    THE DESIGNERS ADD THAT THE SUITS, ORIGINATED TWO YEARS AGO, FOLLOW MANY CHANGES IN NURSES' UNIFORMS, SUCH AS THE INTRODUCTION OF CAPS AND CUFFS THAT CAN BE THROWN AWAY.
