• Short Summary

    People fun at Battersea funfair, then watch a fashion show on the boating lake.

  • Description

    No titles. Festival of pop and fashion.

    Battersea Park, London.

    Various shots of people having fun and milling about a fairground. General view taken from Ferris Wheel, people in boats on lake, people riding dodgem cars. Commentator says the occasion is a festival of pop and fashion, giving fans a chance to mingle with pop stars. One of the men in a dodgem car looks a bit like Peter Sarsted, but don't recognise any others.

    We then see various shots of male and female models parading in the latest fashions on a catwalk across a boating lake - pant suits and a mini dress with big hippy hat. Good late 1960s fashions. A man and woman wear predicted fashions for the year 2000 - silver lurex catsuits, with a great helmet covered in baubles for the girl. Funny shots as the models all start dancing on the catwalk, in a groovy, 1969 kind of way.
