The Nelson Photo News



New Zealand Fashion Scene

Summer time is fashion time, a time to cast aside that winter wardrobe and head for the great outdoors in the swingin' styles of 66-67.

This month we feature the coming range of beach fashions, casual wear, and evening attire. Modelling the garments exclusively for "Photo News" are three Australian beauty contest winners (below), Misses Cheryl Waller (Miss Marina), Wendy Gibbes (Miss Golden Girl), and Marita Fagerstrom (Miss Gold Coast).

High Summer Sizzle

Mix and Match

Navy & White

Cut Out


Go way out at the beach this year in frilled Hokanui pants and brief camisol top of colourful floral cotton, manufactured in New Zealand by Cole of California.


For unlimited colour combinations, join forces with your friends and buy Mix and Match cardies, a novel garment in two halves of contrasting colours with front and back buttoning. Made in N. Z. by Shetland Knitwear. Ay-won stretch linen pants with the modern straight cut add a touch of style.

Following the trend of overseas, cut out full-piece swimsuits will be seen on New Zealand beaches this summer.


For The Sunbather

Out West

Bikini Brief

Go Gay


For maximum exposure to the sun's golden rays, a brief spotted cotton bikini. And when it comes time to cover up, matching top and shorts complete this four-piece set.


Continuing the trend of male influence in head wear, this straw hat in the cowboy style has unbuttoning brim for extra shade.


For the slim Miss, a brief satinized bikini adds glamour to the scene.


After a day at the beach, go gay in a frilled Mexican cover-up top, matched here with cotton stretch trews.




For the Patio

Dining Out
