  • Description

    The full title reads "White City - ROYAL VISITORS - H.R.H. Duchess of York keenly interested in the fashion Parade at British Industries Fair."

    White City, London.

    Duchess of York (later Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother) seated with several men for the fashion show at he British Industries Fair - (I believe that a man on her right is Lord Derby).

    Two models in long silk dresses with big flowers attached to the chest parading along a long podium. Close up shot of the Duchess of York talking to the men next to her.

    Next model is wearing long colourful dress and a short dark cape over it. The inside of cape is made of the same colourful fabric as the dress - looks fabulous. Duchess looking on. Model turning around. Duchess talking the the men next to her. She seems to be very interested in frocks.

    Several shots of the dress parade - most evening dresses and one wedding dress. Two model showing very pretty silk underwear.
