    Background: BALESTRA, THE ROME FASHION HOUSE, REVEALED SOME OF THEIR SPRING AND SUMMER CREATIONS THIS WEEK. FIRST, A HAZEL ROSE WOOLLEN SUIT WORN WITH A HIGH-CROWNED HAT. THE JACKET, WAS HELD CLOSED WITH A BOW OF THE SAME MATERIAL. THE MODEL WORE A PRINTED FLOWER-PATTERNED BLOUSE UNDER THE JACKET.

    NEXT, A GREEN WOOLLEN SUIT. THIS WAS LOOSELY FITTED, WITH THE JACKET HAVING A CUT-AWAY EFFECT AT THE FRONT. IT WAS LINED WITH GREEN AND ROSE PRINTED SILK. IT WAS WORN WITH A HAT OF THE SAME MATERIAL AS THE JACKET LINING. THEN CAME A LIGHTWEIGHT TWEED COAT WITH LEATHER BELT. THE COLOURS RANGE FROM BEIGE TO BROWN AND BLACK. IT WAS MODELLED WITH A HIGH-CROWNED BROWN STRAW HAT.

    BY WAY OF CONTRAST, A WHITE SILK AFTERNOON DRESS. THIS WAS PRINTED WITH LARGE BLACK ROSES; AND FEATURES A BLACK TAFFETA BELT AND TWO BLACK TAFFETA BOWS AT THE NECKLINE. THE LARGE BLACK HAT WAS MADE FROM ROSE PETAL SHAPED PIECES OF ORGANZA SILK.

    FOR COCKTAIL TIME, A TURQUOISE ENSEMBLE. THE UPPER PART WAS OF SHANTUNG MATERIAL AND THE DRESS OF CHIFFON. THE DRESS HAD A SLIGHT FLARED TENDENCY. THE EFFECT OF THE V-NECKLINE WAS HEIGHTENED BY THE BOLERO EMBROIDERED WITH RHINESTONES AND PEALS.

    THE SHOWING ENDED WITH A HEAVY CREPE EVENING GOWN - A SIMPLE CREATION SOMEWHAT RESEMBLED A TOGA - AND A BANANA YELLOW TAFFETA FULL EVENING GOWN. IT GRACEFULLY TRAILED THE FLOOR AND WAS AGAIN ESSENTIALLY A SIMPLE DESIGN.
