    Background: JOHN CAVANAGH'S COLLECTION OF AUTUMN FASHIONS WERE PREVIEWED IN LONDON, TODAY (THURSDAY).

    JOHN CAVANAGH SAYS THAT THE SPEED AND MOVEMENT OF LIFE TODAY, WHEN MOST PEOPLE ARE SO MUCH "YOUNGER IN HEART", DEMAND AN UNCLUTTERED AND UNRESTRICTED EASE IN CLOTHES. THIS IS BALANCED BY A CASUAL GLAMOUR IN THE RELAXING HOURS. BUT, AT THE SAME TIME, FEMINITY NEED NOT BE SACRIFICED FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE EASY-GOING LIFE.

    SUITS IN THE COLLECTION HAVE JACKETS, EITHER SHORT OR LONG, THAT ARE MORE SHAPED AND TAILORED. THE DRESS AND JACKET ARE MORE IN EVIDENCE. SKIRTS REMAIN SHORT AND EASY-MOVING.

    OVERCOATS ARE EITHER LEAN AND CURVY OR FREE-SWINGING FROM NARROWED CHOULDERS. SHALL COLLARS FIT SNUGGLY.

    DRESSES CURVE FROM A HIGH-MOULDED BOSOM AND ARE MAINLY SLEEVELESS WITH SMALL, ROUND NECKLINES. THE CUT IS OFTEN EMPHASISED IN TOP-STITCHED SEAMS.

    EARLY-EVENING HEMLINES PLUNGE DRAMATICALLY TO TEN INCHES FROM THE GROUND AND THE THEATRE SUIT IS REPLACED BY THE DRESS AND COAT. GLAMOUR CLOTHES ARE LONG, WHETHER TROUSERS OR SKIRTS, AND ALWAYS CASUAL - IN LUXURY FABRICS AND A BLAZE OF COLOUR.

    WHAT ARE DESCRIBED AS "VIBRATING" COLOURS DOMINATE - CYCLAMEN RED, ELECTRIC PINK AND GLEAMING WHITE. AS FOR FABRICS. LIGHTWEIGHT TWEEDS, SMOOTH WORSTEDS, WOOL VELOUR, SILK CREPE AND EXOTIC PRINTS ARE WELL TO THE FORE.
