3AW Melbourne radio comperes Peter Ellis and Judy Willing gush over a 'superb' Paris frock worn by Helen Wiseman at The Stork Club in Melbourne in 1947. They also introduce Stork Club owner Sammy Lee.
The skirt is in the new harem style, decorated with handpainted gold flowers, which Willing remarks she has never seen before. Mrs Wiseman says it is very comfortable to dance in.
Willing says to Wiseman, 'You might have thought I was very rude because I never took my eyes off you for one moment'.
