• Short Summary

    The latest in teenage party frocks, modelled in the Pathe studio.

  • Description

    Titles read: "FASHION FEATURE".

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Several shots of the latest in teenage party frocks, for girls who were "too young before the war and haven't been able to get one since". Three mannequins wander about a room, powdering their noses before a dressing table, admiring each other's dresses and generally preparing for an outing.

    The first is a 'dance frock' in Chantilly lace with a button tunic and ruffled basque and short, puffed sleeves. The second is in white rayon faconne with a simple line and a bustle plus matching bolero that "helps to create that grown-up feeling".

    The last is a crepe dress with a small flower print all over it, and a tiered waistline. The three models walk towards the camera as commentator says "Three things to remember, they're on sale now, they're not expensive and they're not for export".
