Ghost's couture suits all tastes

TANYA SARNE showed her Ghost label at London Fashion Week for the last time yesterday. The designer decamped from London to New York in the early Nineties and she plans to return there next season.

Her parting shot here cemented her label's reputation as one of this country's finest.

She had something for everyone, from the very young and very thin to the not-so-young and not-so-thin. Skirts were floor-sweeping or knee- length, narrow or full; camisoles came with and without little sleeves.

The Victorian scene that emerged on the Ghost catwalk last season was further developed, with high-necked delicately embroidered blouses based on lingerie but in far more subtle colours: pale jade, primrose, buttermilk and black.

Later a beatnik feel came to the fore - skinny shirts worn over full skirts with punched leather belts tied at the hip.

The knitwear gets better every season, this time with fondant-coloured tops, skirts and dresses that resembled the prettiest babywear though rather more sexy.

For evening, the glamorous Ghost customer will not be disappointed by sequinned and embroidered chiffon dresses in palest grey, plum and black worn with slightly quilted velvet coats in rich midnight colours.
