Pathe Studio, London.
Various shots of mannequins modelling the latest evening gowns designed by British fashion designer Clive Duncan.
The models seem to be arriving at a cocktail party. They stand around a small bar and are served drinks by Pamela Sale. Lady Patricia McDonald wears a chiffon velvet gown, trimmed with cascading wallflowers, with a stiffened skirt to give a semi-crinoline effect. Pamela wears an Empire line white frock of hand-woven wool with a deep scoop neckline. She also wears a black velvet choker.
Jean Hillsdon wears a pannier pleated gown of satin with an accordion pleated train. Lynne Jennings wears a gown of shadow-lace over satin.
Good footage of evening wear that looks inspired by Victorian fashions.
