    Background: MORE THAN 1,000 INTERNATIONAL BUYERS HAVE ARRIVED IN BRITAIN FOR LONDON FASHION EXPORT WEEK WHICH WAS LAUNCHED TODAY (MONDAY). THE ORGANISERS, THE ASSOCIATED FASHION DESIGNERS OF LONDON, SAID ORDERS WORTH SEVERAL HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF POUNDS STERLING WOULD BE PLACED DURING THE NEXT FEW WEEKS FOR AUTUMN DELIVERY OF WOMEN'S AND CHILDREN'S CLOTHES.

    ONE OF THE FIRST DESIGNERS AT THE SHOW IN A LONDON NIGHTCLUB WAS MARK RUSSELL, WHO CALLED HIS COLLECTION "COVER-GIRL". A WELL APPLAUDED OFFERING WAS A GOLD AND SILVER OUTFIT IN COIN-BONDED FABRIC, COMPLETE WITH HELMET.

    LAST YEAR BRITISH WOMEN SPENT GBP1,700 MILLION ON CLOTHES AND NINETY PERCENT OF THOSE WERE PRODUCED IN BRITAIN. JOHN MARKS APTLY CALLED HIS COLLECTION "THE ANIMALS". IT FEATURED DRESSES, COATS AND SUITS, IN A VARIETY OF ANIMAL SKINS RANGING FROM LEOPARD TO MONKEY.

    THE TWELVE DESIGNERS ON SHOW PRODUCED OUTFITS IN THE SLINKIEST COMBINATIONS OF LAME AND FEATHERS, FURS AND SEQUINS TO SHOW THAT YOUNG GIRLS OF LONDON ARE HOLDING THEIR PLACE AS THE MOST DARING DRESSERS IN THE WORLD. THEY EXPECT THAT WOMEN THIS YEAR WILL SPORT MISS LONDON'S NEW CLINGING LINE WITH SKIRTS CUT OFF ABOUT THREE INCHES (SEVEN CMS) ABOVE THE KNEE. THE TWELVE FASHION HOUSES THAT DISPLAYED TODAY EXPECT THEY WILL BETTER THEIR TWO MILLION STERLING EXPORT RECORD FOR THE LAST 18 MONTHS.

    THE BUYERS WHO SAW THE OPENING SHOW TODAY WERE FROM EUROPE, THE UNITED STATES, CANADA AND AUSTRALIA.
