• Short Summary

    A fashion show is staged - we see what goes on behind the scenes.

  • Description

    Filmed at Dorland Hall, London.

    A fashion parade in a small hall. The dress modelled is long, flowing and flowery.

    Pathe decide to show us the hustle and bustle of what goes on backstage. Various shots of models getting ready. The girls chat to each other. A dresser hands a bouquet to a model dressed in a wedding gown. She says (in a very posh accent) "Thank you so much".

    Two girls gossip (looks very staged) - they too have very posh accents. Various shots of girls putting on clothes, doing their make-up, adjusting hats etc. Then some shots of the girls on stage modelling the outfits. Bias cut gowns etc.

    The two girls seen before are gossiping about men. Girls are seen in their underwear pulling on dresses. A man and woman discuss the order of presentation. The wedding scene is seen on stage.
