03 TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 4: BOHAN:
"A very youthful line based on two colours. Everything is two-toned navy and white, red and white, the shoes are two-toned, stockings are natural shades. The length is about to the knee and fitted. Everything is fitted at the waist, and almost always belted, vests are short, worn over longer dresses. Many dresses with vests - plain-coloured vests over printed skirts. The bosom is very defined. A scarf, the scarf of the season, navy and white and a be beret which hides the hair in a felt navy and white."

Background: With French fashion houses preparing to show their spring-summer 1972 collections, Dior designer Marc Bohan yesterday (17 January) outlined the coming trends. The well-dressed woman will wear a tailored two-tone look - with slightly flared skirts, fitted waistline and contrasting jacket and dress. Navy and white will be the combination of the season. Evening wear will be very feminine with ruffle, organdie and crepe georgette to flatter shoulders and arms.
Overseas buyers of haute couture - high fashion - now also want cheaper ready-made garments. Most of Paris' leading designers have launched into mass production without forgetting the special clothes for wealthy clients.
