  • Description

    RUSSIAN FASHIONS IN WEST BERLIN: A DISPLAY OF THE LATEST SOVIET FASHIONS FROM THE WORLD FAMOUS GUM DEPARTMENT STORE OF MOSCOW, WAS STAGED AT THE EUROPA CENTRE IN THE HEART OF THE DIVIDED CITY ON MONDAY. FASHION CONSCIOUS WEST BERLINERS WERE TREATED TO A DISPLAY OF MODERN FASHIONABLE CLOTHING AT VERY COMPETITIVE PRICES. IN PARTICULAR THE COLLECTION FEATURED FURS - ESPECIALLY MINK, ERMINE AND SABLE - FOR WHICH THE SOVIET UNION IS NOTED.

    THE SHOW - CLAIMED TO BE THE FIRST DISPLAY OF RUSSIAN CLOTHING IN A WESTERN COUNTRY - WAS PUT ON WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF THE WEST BERLIN FASHION EXPORT ASSOCIATION.

    APART FROM THE FASHION SHOW ITSELF, IT'S HOPED THAT THE EVENT WILL LEAD TO THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A FIRM AND PROFITABLE TRADING RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE MOSCOW STORE AND WEST BERLIN BUYERS. ONE INDICATION OF THE IMPORTANCE THE RUSSIANS PLACED ON THE EVENT WAS THE FACT THAT THE GUM MANAGER, MR. KOTSCHUROV ACCOMPANIED THE MODELS ON THE TRIP.

    (IN ADDITION TO SELLING CLOTHES, GUM MAINTAINING A BUSY DEPARTMENT WHICH SPECIALISES IN MAKING CLOTHES, SHOES AND HATS TO MEASURE).
