A reception dress (left) made of green fancy-colored chiffon, with pants instead of gown, and wide flounces, and an after-ski of violet wool complete with gloves and stockings, handmade of sky-blue wool (right). These are two creations by the Alberto Fabiani fashion house of Rome and Paris, presented at the Florence show of Italian spring and summer fashions in Italy, on January 18, 1965.
