Many journalists who helped to build Saint Laur- ent's reputation over Uie years are hurt by his press veto, but Ihe designer is still such big news that his future couture presentations will un- doubtedly be reported sec- ond hand after interviews with privalc clients. The press used lo gel "black market" reports on Gi- venchy and Balenciaga 10 years ago when they refused to show lo Ibe press until one month after buyers and pri- vate clients had seen their collections. Jacques Honct, director of the Maison Dior where Sainl Laurent was employed as head designer until he opened his own couture house in Jan- uary, 1962, said: "Every Paris couliu'e house faces dif- ferent problems. I have enor- mous respect for Saint Laur- ent's talent. He is free to cre- ate and commercialize as he sees fit, and this decision con- cerns him personally." Maison Dior will continue its couture operations and there is no question at present of changing dates to coincide with the ready-lo-wcar show- ings. Mme. Andre de Vilmorin, sales director at Dior, reports Ihat the house hns had the best buying seasons in the last four years. Dior can expect a lucrative season with private clients when (hey return lo Paris after the summer holidays and begin placing orders. Seventy per cent of the cou- ture turnover at Dior is with Ihe private clientele, includ- ing the Empress of Iran. The professional buyers who take Ihc other 30 per cent of Dior dollies pay far higher prices than private clients for the right to reproduce the models. Each collection is es- timated to cost more lhan not counting furs. OBJECTIVES VAHV As does Houel, Givenchy acknowledges lhal each cou- lure house has different objec- lives. His private clientele also outranks professional buy- ing though cue long, body-conscious jacket, flared skirt and matching stole in reversible woollen- has sold an unprecedented 40 Limes lo separate interna- tional buyers in Uie last two weeks. "Saint Laurent con do as he says Givenchy, "but my couture clientele is far more important lhan rcady- lo-wear or professional buy- ing, and I shall continue lo create a high fashion collec- tion every January and July." M m e. de Clermont-Ton- ncrre, the spokesman for Cha- nel, explained Ihat the late de- signer's business consists of at) per cent private clients and 20 per cent professionals, and is the only leading house which does nol make rcady- lo-wear clolhes. After Chanel's dealh lasl January, private clients dou- bled the usual number of or- ders, realizing thai it was the last collection designed by the famed eoiiluriere. The Chanel workrooms were so crowded thai many orders could not be delivered for four months. Pierre Cardin, the only self-financed couturier in Paris, also acknowledged that the couture attracts tremen- dous publicity and serves as a pilot operation lo promote world-wide sales of perfume, accessories, and ready lo wear. "Couture is indispensable to my said Cardin, al- though he is still pondering his old idea of presenting just one enormous couture collec- tion each year instead of the present system of twice- yearly showings in January and July, j-ctmil y Varied interests in Y program fvu 1i it 111 KfH'v fal1 programs have been 1J llll Inl 11 iVKI I announced for the Lethbridge oii on cruise Car safely seats TOT AUTOMOBILE SAFETY SEAT BACK-TO-SCHOOL SPECIALS Watches Boys'ond dainty 9ir'5 17 fully jewelled ENGLISH CHINA COFFEE MUGS SANDY'S JEWELLERY 304, On Ihs Second Floor, To Save You More 304 5th St. S.

Nnmc Address Telephone Pico Day Sdir.ol Councj I Day Sdir.ol Council Public awareness of child safety scats has heen sharn- ly increased through the ef- forts of consumer, safety and women's groups across Can- ada, according to a recent ic- lease from a national auto- mobile manufacturer The interest in Lelhbridge, however, is somewhat less than statistics quoted by that release. Total sales of that companies' safety scats was only in 1970. as compared In a jump lo I.fJOJ in the first six months of 1371, of that increase in Ihc second quarter'. According to one parts de- partment manager in a car sales oullcL in Lethbridge, "People don't want to have Lo pay to get a Canada Safety Council approved seat." He says that most custo- mers want tile safely fea- lures, but are not willing to pay the near price lo ob- tain it. "There are lots of dif- ferent kinds of seats on the market, but very few of them are government he said. According to a small sur- vey done by The Herald, only one large automobile dealer- ship in Lelhbridge has an ap- proved safety seat, and that only amounts to one which is held on stock. Designs for the seals vary, but in most cases Safely Council approval models, are held in place by the car's scat bells. They can be de- scribed, according to a sales brochure from one Auto manufacturer as "greatly re- ducing Ihe chance of injury in collisions or sudden stops." "The upright L-shapcd car- rier supports Ihe back of the baby's head and upper lorso. At the same time, the baby is gently restrained wilhin protective contours by ad- juslable straps, and Uie ve- hicle lap bell lhal secures both the carrier and baby to the vehicle seat." In this par- ticular model, the seat is placed so thai the child faces behind Ihe car, and is pro- lected by tnc back of Ihe seat from a collision with the dash board. Anyone wishing a seat can order one through (lie l.irgcr auto dealerships in Loth- bridge. DATELINE: CAMPUS CANADA LOOK WHAT JUST FLEW IN FROM SPAIN!
