  • Description

    No titles.

    London.

    C/U of water coming out of a watering can, then we see it is directed at a model in a velvet coat. The water just runs off as commentator explains this is a new kind of waterproof Swiss velvet that is being tested.

    Two men direct a stirrup pump at the coat and the water just shakes off and runs about in droplets like mercury. C/U of water being poured onto normal velvet, making a wet patch.

    Several shots of another model parading about in a velvet coat which she removes to show off a velvet dress.
