    ROME HAS BEEN THE FOCUS OF THE FASHION WORLD THIS WEEK, WITH SOME OF THE CITY'S TOP DESIGNERS SHOWING THEIR CREATIONS FOR THE COMING WINTER. HERE'S A PREVIEW OF ELEONORA GARNETT'S COLLECTION.

    SUITS HAVE LONGER JACKETS, WHICH ARE MOULDED TO THE FIGURE, AND STRAIGHT CUT SKIRTS WITH HEM LINES ABOUT 18 INCHES (46-47 CMS.) FROM THE FLOOR. COATS ARE STRAIGHT CUT, WITH ROUNDED SHOULDERS AND SMALL COLLARS. SOME ARE LINED WITH MINK OR BEAVER FUR. DINNER DRESSES HAVE LONG NARROW SKIRTS, LOW-CUT NECKLINES, AND ARE FREQUENTLY WORN WITH SHORT JACKETS. EVENING DRESSES GENERALLY CLING TO THE FIGURE... SOME HAVE COATS TO MATCH, OFTEN MADE OF WOOL.

    A CREATION FOR EVENING WEAR, CALLED 'SYMPHONY', IS MADE OF BLACK BROCADE, AND FEATURES A LOW-CUT LACE NECKLINE. FOR THE FASHIONABLE PARTY HOSTESS, THERE'S 'PAKA HOI' -- A TWO-PIECE OUTFIT IN GREEN JERSEY, WITH THE TOP HALF WORN INSIDE THE TROUSERS. THE NECKLINE IS EMBROIDERED WITH CRYSTALS. FOR OUTDOOR WEAR THERE'S A WHITE WOOL COAT, LINED WITH BROWN SEAL SKIN, THAT'S WORN WITH A WHITE WOOL DRESS. WOOL AGAIN -- THIS TIME ENTITLED 'DIDO' -- A PURPLE COAT LINED WITH MINK, WORN OVER A MATCHING PURPLE DRESS. FINALLY 'TANIA' -- AN EXCITING BLACK WOOL COAT, TRIMMED WITH FOX FUR, WORN OVER A BLACK DRESS.
