But for those less formal occasions, the classic Village look is still "in" this year, as modelled by No.18.
The multi coloured striped jersey, narrow hips are in again, with tightly cut jeans, and flat shoes is what all the girls will be wearing this summer for the "girl about deck" casual look, and topped off with a sailors cap. Even here in the Village trends can be set, and Village fashion can cater for all tastes and looks, as there is something for the business woman who is going places, but who still requires that look of independence, yet uniformed, as modelled by No.8.
For the more exotic and daring girls, and young women amongst us, who look for something a little more daring and sexy in todays modern fashions, there is the white chiffon veil, over a white satin dress with matching high heeled shoes, and earings, for that glamourous sexylook, as seen modelled by Sonia at a recent Funfair fasion shoot.
But what about the gentlemen? What will the trendy, young man about Village be wearing this season? Well it's the Carnaby Street look again this season, as modelled by No.6.
So there we have it, a sample of some of the looks you can expect to see in the season to come. I have to thank the owners of the Kursaal Funfair at Southend-on-Sea for their co-operation, along with No.2, who instigated this fashion shoot, giving special dispensation for going beyond the confimes of the Village. Special thanks go to the French Fashion photographer Monsieur Pierre Le Buffon, pictured here at the Kursaal Funfair.
Sonia is pictured thanking Monsieur Le Buffon with a kiss, a most pleasing experience it would seem.
Bonjour Chez Vous
