    MISS DAVIES EXPORTS HER MODELS TO MANY PARTS OF THE WORLD- AND THE NAMES GIVEN TO THESE CREATIONS REFLECT THE INTERNATIONAL INFLUENCES OF THE COLLECTION.

    "MANHATTAN NIGHT" - ONE OF THE MOST SOPHISTICATED MODELS, IS IN ORGANZA WITH A BROAD BRIM EFFECT ACHIEVED BY SWIRLING BLACK FEATHERS.

    ANOTHER MODEL WHICH PRESENTS A SIMILAR EFFECT IS "CARDINAL".THIS IS IN NAVY STRAW, WITH THE BROAD BRIM OVERLAID WITH A THICK SKIRT OF GREEN RAFFIA.

    AUSTRALIAN MODEL-GIRL LOIS JAMES SHOWS AN APT CREATION- SUNDOWNER.THE FAMOUS AUSTRALIAN SLOUCH HAT APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN THE INSPIRATION FOR THIS MODEL WITH IT SIDE SWEPT BRIM...

    THE TURBAN, WHICH HAS PROVED A PERENNIAL FAVOURITE WITH MANY MILLINERS AND THEIR CLIENTELE, IS GIVEN A FRESH INTERPRETATION BY MISS DAVIES.IN CREAM ORGANZA, IT HAS BEEN DUBBEC "MYSTERIOUS EAST."
    BOATERS ARE BACK - TWICE IN FACT - IN A PAIR FROM THE BOUTIQUE COLLECTION CALLED "LITTLE GIRL, BIG GIRL."
    THE EMPHASIS ON DRAMATIC BRIMS FOR MANY OF THE RATS IS SEEN AGAIN IN "MAPLE SYRUP" - IN STARTLING BLACK AND WHITE.HERE THE STARK WIDE BRIM IS CONTRASTED WITH A DEMURE FLOWER CAP.

    AS WITH MANY OTHER DESIGNERS, THE BRILLIANT DESIGNS OF CECIL BEATON FOR THE FILM VERSION OF "MY FAIR LADY" HAVE MADE THEIR MARK.IN MISS DAVIES' COLLECTION THERE ARE TWO MODELS IN THIS TREND - "LIZA DOOLITTLE", A YOUTHFUL BOATER COVERED WITH WHITE DAISIES, AND "ESWARDIAN BELLE",A BOLD ELEGANT DESIGN THAT BRINGS MEMORIES OF ASCOT WEEK TO A GREY WINTER'S DAY IN LONDON.

    THE FINAL REMINDER OF THE APPROACH OF SPRING COMES FROM "MISS HOOP OF HOLLAND," A YOUTHFUL DUTCH BONNET IN TULIF PINK ORGANZA GARLANDED WITH MASSED FLOWERS.
