  • Description

    Titles read: "FASHION FEATURE".

    London.

    Various shots of mannequins in the latest in afternoon wear dresses and suits. Commentator tells us that the fabrics used are cotton pile materials and "really do cost between 6 and 7 guineas even though they look worth twice that much".

    The models are seen in the set of a drawing room. The first wears a corduroy dress with a kind of pillbox hat. The next wears "an ATS girl's dream frock" - a dress with a plain bodice and pleated front. A hat trimmed with bows completes the outfit. The last model wears a suit with a straight skirt and a long line jacket that is nipped in at the waist and flares over the hips - looks like a predecessor of the New Look. She also wears a beret with satin trimming.
