  • Description

    IN PARIS THIS WEEK, A PERIOD OF HIGH PRESSURE AND ACTIVITY IS ON AMONG THE FASHION DESIGNERS. OFTEN THE COLLECTIONS ARE THE CULMINATION OF THREE MONTH'S INTENSIVE WORK AND INSPIRATION.

    JACQUES ESTEREL WAS ON HAND, PEEPING THROUGH THE CURTAINS TO WATCH THE REACTIONS OF HIS AUDIENCE. THE MODELS, BUSY AS BEES, OFTEN DIPPED IN AND OUT OF AS MANY AS NINE DIFFERENT CREATIONS EACH.

    AFTER THE DESIGNERS, THE TECHNICAL PEOPLE AND THEN THE SEAMSTRESSES WORKED HARD IN THAT SPECIAL WORLD WHERE SECURITY IS SO IMPORTANT IN KEEPING NEW DESIGNS SECRET LONG ENOUGH TO FORESTALL IMITATORS. AND THEN THE MODELS -- THEY ARE FROM ALL NATIONS, BUT IN THE MOST FRENCH OF CLOTHES.

    FROM ALL NATIONS TOO -- THE FASHION JOURNALISTS. FOR THE PRESS SHOWINGS, THEIR ACCREDITATION IS STRICTLY SCRUTINISED TO PREVENT ANY FASHION SPY FROM GETTING IN AMONG THEM. OFTEN, NEWSPAPERS SEND TWO OF THEIR FASHION WRITERS TO BE AT ONE SHOW AND AS USUAL SPACE IS SOMEWHAT LIMITED.

    HOW ARE ESTEREL'S CREATIONS? HEMLINES ARE ULTRA-SHORT, ABOVE THE KNEES, WAISTLINES ARE RAISED AND THERE ARE WIDE FLARED SKIRTS. YOUTH AND SEX ARE THE KEYNOTES OF THE OPENING COLLECTIONS.
