Joe and Hebe are talking about the show that just passed.
Well, there was quite a show!
I’ll say. I’ve never seen one as good as it. That final dress was amazing! I don’t even know what the material was.
Some kind of silk, I think.
But the way it was folded—really great. I thought the theme was good, too—that kind of 30s style.
Not very Indian, though.
I think it was supposed to be influenced by Scottish style—you know, the designer was talking about house parties before the war, aristocrats, that sort of decadent sexy style. I’m glad they didn’t just do that pre-war style, because that’s been so common recently.
Oh, that’s why they had the skirts that looked like kilts, and those half-slung things over the shoulder.
And it looks like a little furry animal.
Do Scottish people really wear that kind of costume? It looks very strange, especially on the men.
No, they just wear them for very formal occasions or when doing historical things. It’s like a ceremonial old-style dress.
Oh, I see. So it’s a kind of dressing-up?
Yes, for weddings and balls and so on. Normally we’d wear suits, but Scotsmen can wear kilts on some occasions. Not for business though.
