    "HERE WE ARE ALREADY IN THE SPRING WITH THAT GREEN ENSEMBLE. YOU SEE THIS IS VERY, VERY DRY MATERIAL, VERY NEAT AND THE SEAMS ARE OBLIQUICAL...OBLIQUE... THE HAT IS A PARCEL VERY NEATLY TIED AND THE DRESS IS MADE OF WHITE JERSEY EDGED WITH THE TIME SAME MATERIAL... IT SHOULD BE A GOOD SELLER, DON'T YOU THINK SO?"



    WOMAN'S VOICE: "GOODNESS, HOW SHORT."



    BALMAIN: "THAT'S THE POINT. YOU KNOW, SHE'S THE YOUNGEST OF ALL OUR MANNEQUINS. THIS YOUNG DANISH GIRL IS ONLY 18 BUT SHE IS DRESSED LIKE A GIRL OF 18 SHOULD BE."



    WOMAN'S VOICE: "YES, BUT I CAN'T SELL THAT LENGTH TO MY CUSTOMERS."



    BALMAIN: "YES, BUT YOUR CUSTOMERS WILL HAVE IT SLIGHTLY LONGER, THAT WOULD BE EXACTLY THE SAME. LOVELY CHECK, THIS ONE IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT."



    "AND AS FOR THE EVENING DRESSES, THEY ARE VERY OFTEN WITH LONG SLEEVES. THIS IS A VERY HEAVY LACE, THERE'S A RUFFLE AT THE BOTTOM. IT IS FOR DINNER IN A SUMMER NIGHT. THIS ONE HAS THE NEW CUT, OBLIQUICAL, WITH A BAND OF EMBROIDERY IN TURQUOISE. AND THIS IS LIKE A CAPE."
