AND MORE TO COME— Kalian movie queen Silvans Mangano, left chats in Rome with her pretty sister, Patrizia, who has a bit role in her next movie. As if two talented beauties in one family weren't enough, a third sister, Nntascia, 16, also appears in the Italian-made film. Fashion Leader Accuses kalian. Industry of 'Hitting Below Belt' compete with a lovely woman In a beauty contest. Italian designs, she , lack fantasy and sometimes are too close to copying historical costumes. Financial Dlflcultln Of the Trench fashion industry's current hard times, Mme. Schla- parelli said, "They are entirely financial." Citing "savage government taxes," she said only a subsidy or relaxation of tnxes and social security costs cau save the situation. There are too many Paris fashion houses, she declared bluntly, and many of them will have to close. The government, she proposed, should select "live or 10 houses to help." There are no more than that number, she said, which are really creating new fashions and setting the trends. "Others make prc'ty clothes, but that Is not the point, It is new trends which are important, and bringing out a really lew collection is always a risk. We oi;ght to be compensated for risk. Those who follow take very little risk. 1 With taxes relaxed, prices could be scaled down, the designer said, "The only reason buyers are going to Italy Is that their prices are cheaper than ours.'

Schiaparelll said she was most, reluctant to criticize her countrymen, "but the Paris fasliicn industry Is going through very hard times indeed, and it is not nice to hit someone whrn they are down." Italian fashions, she added in an exclusive Interview, owe everything to Paris inspiration, "just as .American and English fashions do.' Describing the Franco - Italian fashion war is '» lot of noise about nothing." Mme. Schlaparelll said ane thinks talk of competition with Paris "has been put in the Italian's mouths by someone else." She declined to ,say by whom, but commented, "American buyers have been put on th« scent of finding something new." "Why do they keep trying to take the fsshion capital away from Parts?" the designer Hsked. Parts Only Plwe "Paris is the only place that has the right creative atmosphere.
