By LORRAINE BUTLER
The ancient Romans and the
events of Nero's day are responsible
for a new trend in women's fash-

been inspired by Nero and his fel-

Seymour Burn, style director
of the textile company which re-
cently previewed 254 Roman-
inspired fabric designs, said that
this sudden trend came about
because they discovered that
Nero's day "so closely paralleled

scandal similar to our basketball
scandal," said Mr. Burn.

THE FABRIC company cannot
control the styles that dress manu-
facturers create for the Roman
prints, but the spokesman for the
company said that they frankly
hope that there will be adapta-

and sports Jerkins bound with
Mr. Burn said, "The Roman
trend will take up where Hawaii-
an prints leave off." He explain-
ed thatHawaiian prints will be
in the mass market by summer,
and Roman prints will start in
Just by a coincidence, the movie
"Quo Vadis" was being filmed in
Rome at the same time the textile
researchers were there looking in-
to Roman history.

"IT WAS Just one of those
things-saved us about a million
dollars worth of research," Mr.
Burn continued. He explained that

MGM turned its costume research-
er over to the textile company.
A display of Roman fabrics
is being released in connection
with the movie, but Mr. Burn
insisted that the designs would
have been created regardless of

the similarity of the times. Nero

"HOWEVER every fashion de-
pends on some vehicle. The flapper
fashion can thank John Held, Jr.,
and the Gibson girl was created
by Charles Dana Gibson," Mr.
Burn went on to say.
He compared further the
Hawaiian print fad with the pre-
dicted trend in prints based on
the Roman society of a couple
thousand years ago.
"Esther Williams and those
swimming movies made Hawaiian
prints popular and now the movie
'Quo Vadis' will aid this fashion to
gain a stronghold in women's
wardrobes," Mr. Burn stated.

ONE OF THE new prints has a
