HIGH SUMMER’S HIGH FASHION
. ' I
p \ y . If. , M
.In Nardini’s Restaurant in the Rotunda,
clothes by a wide range of designers, from Vivien Westwood to Simpson's oi Picadilly, are paraded belore unsuspecting consumers at morning cottee or afternoon tea. The common element in this somewhat heterogeneous collection is that all the
clothes are made from wool and cashmere tabrics woven and/or spun in Scotland. What makes the show unusual, though, is not the clothes but the models. They are all part at the MSC's commitment to the Garden Festival and betore the Festival started they were variously out or work garage mechanics, housewives, electricians and similar; certainly not models. It never ceases to amaze me what you can train to do underthe umbrella oi the M80, or used to be able to, but apparently fashion modelling is as good a career option as shipbuilding these days — who knows, perhaps rather better— and the eighteen boys and girls who were selected tor this scheme have been duly primed, painted, sent to acting classes and made to go to bed early by Shelagh Davis and her stall at Model Team Scotland, the top agency in Scotland. lam no judge or these things but the gentlemen from the clothing manutacturers whose products were being displayed by these cat-walk cadets seemed well pleased. ‘They haven’t quite got the arrogance of the protessionals‘ said one thoughtfully ‘but then they don't charge £400 a day.” Shelagh Davis believes that some at least at her charges have enough natural ability to make a living out at modelling when the Garden Festival is over. You can amuse yoursell by trying to guess which ones. And the clothes are quite nice too. (RDS) On every day, Tue to Fri until the end or the Festival at 3pm.
