    Commentary is given by fashion designer Dale Cavahnaugh who gives lavish descriptions of his rather camp designs, example phrase: "Leopard skin Romaine was chosen for this beach shirt and its matching bikini, as an expression of masculine strength. This collection of models aims to interpret the revolt of modern man against the restrictions of conventional design".
