  • Description

    Afraid that their rustic traditions and especially their regional costumes were dying out, the peasants of Fundul, Rumania, and the outlying country districts of Ploesti held fashion parades recently.

    At Ploesti 2,000 people watched the "mannequins" displaying costumes made by the peasants for festivals and 'red-letter' days. The costumes, quaintly cut and heavily ornamented, gave the models a distinctly rustic appearance.

    At Fundul, on a knoll, the peasants sported a variety of unique costumes and suits, including one trimmed with polecaz fur.
