A Scandinavian fur marketing organisation showed off its 1986 International Design Collection on August 28 at the Regent Hotel in Hong Kong. The collection was created by Frederic Caset of the Paris-based fashion house of Christian Dior. Hong Kong is the world's biggest fur trading centre and a natural choice of venue for the launch of the 52-piece mink and fox collection. In addition to the Dior collection, a number of other garments were shown, designed by fashion students from the Ravensbourne College of Art and the Harrow College of Education, both situated in the United Kingdom. The furs on display ranged from the classic jackets and coats of the Dior collection, to the bold geometric designs of the students. Boe Hansen, the President of Saga furs, said the company was trying to show that furs were for all occasions -- casual as well as formal. The student designers showed an enthusiasm for unusual patterns and colour combinations in their garments -- dog-tooth checks, dramatic stripes and bold triangles worked into the furs. Large bat-wing sleeves and bold shoulders were also part of the look created by the young designers. Some styles in the student collection, such as a man's leather and mink bomber jacket, were reversible. In direct contrast with the casual designs of the students, the Dior collection was striving for the elegant look. Some furs featured a hood or were cinched at the waist, and a number displayed curved hemlines and softly rounded shoulders. The Hong Kong showing of the collection was the first Asian stop in a world-wide tour that was scheduled to cover the United States, Japan, West Germany, France, the United Kingdom, South Korea, South America, Australia and Scandinavia.
