    Background: ON MONDAY LAST (29 FEBRUARY) THE PARIS FASHION DESIGNER, YVES SAINT-LAURENT, DECREED THAT WOMEN SHOULD BARE THEIR BOSOMS AND DISPLAY THEM THROUGH THE MOST TRANSPARENT OF BLOUSES. TODAY (3 FEBRUARY) THE TREND HAD ARRIVED IN LONDON'S AVANT-GARDE CARNABY STREET, AND SEE-THROUGH SALESGIRLS WERE BESIEGED WITH ORDERS FROM DAMSELS ANXIOUS TO BE SEEN IN THE LATEST FASHION.

    THE CARNABY STREET VERSION IS PERHAPS THE MOST DIRECT IN ITS APPROACH; SAINT-LAURENT RECOMMENDS THIN BLACK ORGANZA, WHILE OTHER GO-AHEAD BRITISH DESIGNERS HAVE OPTED FOR FRILLS AND SPOTTED VOILE.

    EXPERTS AGREE THAT THE FUTURE OF THE FASHION RATHER DEPENDS UPON THE ATTITUDE OF THE WEARER - IF SHE WEARS IT WITH CONFIDENCE AND ASSURANCE, THEN IT COULD BE HERE TO STAY. WORN AS A GIMMICK THE TREND WILL PROBABLY FADE INTO THE OBLIVION WHICH SEEMS TO AWAIT MOST EXPERIMENTS IN PUBLIC NUDITY.

    THE MOST ASTUTE OBSERVATION COMES FROM A BRASSIERE MANUFACTURER, WHO OBVIOUSLY DOESN'T RELISH THE VOGUE. SAYS THE BRA MAN: "WE NEED ALL THE SUPPORT WE CAN GET, JUST NOW."
