Ally Capellino conjured up a dreamy African vision in layers of linen yesterday. The photograph shows an African head-dress over a blanket-print tunic from Ally Capellino's catwalk show. The show, the company's first since 1989, is the result of a deal signed with Coats Viyella, Britain's largest textiles company. The firm is investing up to pounds 250,000 a year in the Ally Capellino label to support the cost of catwalk shows and advertising.
The arrangement, which is being watched closely by the industry, could be a prototype for similar clothing industry deals between designers and manufacturers.
