Note: this is UN 1746 D, prepped as UN 1845 - presumably that is the film can it now resides in.
Various shots of girls modelling summer dresses in outdoor surroundings in a wood, by a stream of water lilies. The dresses look very much like Christian Dior's New Look - very elegant and feminine, with very full skirts, or slim and draped. Some models wear large hats.
Evening gowns are modelled by women on a terrace and a huge flight of stone steps - looks like grounds of a country mansion. Some have enormous evening coats over them.
A woman in a spotted day dress lolls beside the river. She plucks a water lily from the river, sniffs it, then wonders what to do with it!
More elaborate evening gowns with enormous tulle skirts, some with high necks and long sleeves.
