• Short Summary

    Great shots of fashions at the Nylon Fair in London's Albert Hall.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'ALBERT HALL - NYLON "COMES TO THE FAIR".'

    London.

    C/U of a display of seamed nylon stockings on mannequin feet. People wander around exhibition stalls at the Nylon Fair in the Royal Albert Hall. A model wearing 'Hi Tites' - a kind of all-in-one footless tights and leotard outfit in printed stretch nylon - climbs up a ladder and dusts a curtain rod. The outfit is apparently recommended for doing the housework in.

    Another woman tries on a fake mink coat. She poses with a luxurious look on her face and strokes the 'fur'. Film star Maria Andipa poses in a nylon leopardskin native dress on a nylon leopardskin rug. Nylon leopard completes the outfit.

    Various shots show the nylon fashion show where models parade across a stage in the latest nylon outfits. Outfits seen are a nylon brocade dress, a lurex all-in-one suit with a floaty chiffon cape, 'Brief Encounter' baby doll pyjamas, and five bridal dresses. Each bride has a bouffant veil topped with some kind of hat or tiara. One has an enormous pom-pom on top of her head!
