READY TO WEAR . . . BACK TO REALITY
Sunday 27 August 1995
At his autumn / winter 95 show, Dries Van Noten showed silk floral corsages, beautiful big sprawling flowers. But they cost from pounds 175 to a coma-inducing pounds 495 from Browns. So, BTR steps in to help you interpret this hot new look more cheaply. Pictured right are floral hair decorations by Johnny Loves Rosie. They cost pounds 17.50, come in white, peach, deep red, and pale blue, and you can easily adapt them to pin on to your bodice. John Lewis also have splendid fake flowers from pounds 1.10-pounds 15; all you need is a bit of savvy and a safety-pin and you can do as Dries does. AB
