Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 22, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturdiy, February 22, 1975 A history of Canadian fashion I Designers fostering high-quality fashions j i Written for CP By MARGARET NESS i Twelve Canadian designers banded together last year to form the Fashion Designers' Associa- tion of Canada with the main aim I of fostering interest in high- quality Canadian fashions. In October, the association fired its opening salute with seminars in Montreal and To- ronto for students of fashion design, retail buyers, sales per- i sonnel and the press. The seminars were sponsored by Fashion Canada, a federal government agency. President of the association is Michel Robichaud of Montreal. Founding members are Robert Chernin, Leo Chevalier, Tom d'Auria, Marielle Fleury, Hugh Garber, Elvia Gobbo, Vali Dubsky, John Warden and Donald Richer, Montreal; and Clair Haddad and Pat McDonagh, Toronto. Highlight of the seminars was the presentation of five garments from each designer, no.t necessarily from current collec- tions but intended as statements of their fashion belief. It was not the first Canadian designers' association. A little more than' 20 years ago six Canadians formed the As- sociation of Canadian Couturiers whose membership soon rose to 14. Its aim was to set distinctive Canadian fashion and fabric trends. That year the association presented in Montreal the initial showing of Canadian-designed costumes made from Canadian fabrics. Much has happened since in the presentation of Canadian- designed clothes at home and abroad. Combined collections have been shown in major Ca- i nadian cities and in New York, Paris, Milan and Brussels. In 1959 two large department took the unprecedented step of featuring Canadian- designed clothes. Canadian designers had suffered because there had to be outside recognition, especially from the United States, before Canadians as a whole would acknowledge their talents. By 1960, seven Montreal manufacturers had reproduced several of the costumes shown in the association's spring collec- tion. It was a good beginning. Then the Association dis- banded. Couture was bowing to boutiques. Women were not spending as much for couture clothes. However, the designers recognized that a new field was to or designing for Canadian manufacturers. Auckie Sanft of Montreal brought a young Canadian de- signer back from New York to work for him. This was Niagara Falls-born John Warden. In the following few years other Canadian manufacturers hired Canadian designers. An ex- ample is Montrealer Hugh Garber, hired by Margo Dresses practically from design school. He has been with the firm ever since. Leo Chevalier gave up his own salon to design for several Cana- dian firms. Warden kept his salon but added an impressive list of manufacturers to his work. Some of the designers are manufac- turers, as Claire Haddad with her at-home and loungewear and Elen Henderson with her couture clothes for little girls. The designers have also been helped oyer the years by national fashion shows. The Association of Couturiers started them but oddly enough it was the Inter- national Ladies' Garment Workers' Union (ILGWU) that gave them their impetus. In the spring of 1961 the first union label was sewn into Canadian-made garments and the following September the organization launched its first national collection, showing clothes from Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg and Vancouver. The annual shows continued into the alternating be- tween Montreal and Toronto, with a Winnipeg show for Manitoba's 1970 centennial. FOCUS ON WORKERS At the January, 1970, show, a top Montreal fashion writer wrote: "Over-all what the show did was to indicate a vast im- provement in Canadian design. More and more Montreal and Toronto manufacturers are employing designers to work on original looks and original lines, a fact that cannot help but up- grade the standard of Canadian fashions." In 1967 the ILGWU presented a gala Centennial edition of its national collection at Place des Arts in Montreal. At Expo 67 there was an outdoor Canadian fashion show that drew a large international audience daily. The Ontario Fashion Institute, a group'of designers and manufacturers, presented a show in the Ontario Pavilion to which American and European buyers were invited. It was actually the third annual ex- cellence of show, started by the provincial government to give Ontario fashions a boost. A couple of years ago the institute dis- banded. The provincial govern- ment also gave up the awards shows. It was time for another entrance on the fashion stage. This was Fashion Canada, formed by the federal govern- ment to promote Canadian fashions. It has tried various plans, including national fashion shows and now is concentrating on helping young designers by i means of scholarships abroad. i Another recent factor in bring- ing Canadian designers to the fore is Mode Montreal. Three 1 years ago it brought American fashion writers to Montreal for a three-day look at Quebec fashions. Reviews were i enthusiastic. Last year's show was attended j: by leaders in the American retail 5 field.

By DAN HALL GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) Connecticut's first woman sheriff says one of her first tasks will be an ad- ministrative cleanup of her of- fice. Gloria Clark said the Fair- field County sheriff's office has a number of "patronage" employees and a free- wheeling work schedule that must go. The 34-year-old lawyer was elected county sheriff this year, defeating a 12-year veteran for the opportunity to direct 50 deputies in court security, prisoner transfer and serving legal papers. Mrs. Clark said one of her main campaign tasks was con- vinctng voters that the sheriff's job is mainly ad- ministrative and just as suitable for a woman as a man. "Lots of people had a concept of the sheriff as being like the southern she said. She said she had told one woman who called her "Marsha Dillon" that "I'm not doing this as a She has no fear she will ever have to hold a prisoner at bay with a gun or face other dan- gers, because all risky jobs are delegated to the deputies she appoints. The sheriff also is in the uni- que position' to make con- structive criticism about indi- vidual police departments and the jury system, she said. One of her chief objectives will be increasing a juror's pay from a day and eliminating the need for prospective jurors to sit day after day doing nothing. She said she will try to con- vince the state legislature to test a system of placing pros- pective jurors "on call" at home during early morning hours rather than disrupting their entire day while awaiting trial duty. Mrs. Clark said one problem is that the deputy sheriffs get paid by the job rather than by the hour, so some work hard and get large paycheques while others are available only part'time. Her aim is to replace many of the deputies older than 65 and others who she said owe their jobs to political patronage and to require all deputies to be available for a full day's work. Mrs. Clark said her ex- perience as a lawyer in New York City and service as Greenwich's first female con- stable early this year qualify her for the job.

I responded my friend, looking guiltily over her shoulder. j replied Mazie, fidgeting in her chair. i Being an avid viewer of Colombo, Cannon and Harry 0., I could see we were getting nowhere, so I switched tactics. i "Would this be your personal, traumatic type of guilt or your j more generalized, overall I asked, drawing up the collar of an imaginary trench coat.

"On the television, the radio, in the newspapers, in movies, on bill boards, everywhere there's somebody telling us about something that needs to be done, that only we can do anything continued my friend, shifting her tirade to high gear. "I saw the stories and pictures about the famine in un- derdeveloped countries. I felt guilty for my comfort and com- parative wealth, so I donated money. Did I feel better? I did not only guilty because it was so little to do so much! "Then I saw a billboard that said Canada was an un- derdeveloped nation and we were all a lot of slobs. So I did 63 sit-ups a night and provided the neighbors with endless enter- tainment by taking up jogging. Do I feel better? A bit maybe, but I still feel guilty because I could be doing so much more and I can't look sideways at a doughnut without feeling guilty that I've betrayed my body by craving junk food. "I decided it was small-minded to complain and gossip about people I didn't like, so I quit: mum was the word. But I feel worse. I feel guilty for being such a hypocrite and always smiling sweetly. "I vowed to read more to improve rny mind and keep abreast of current affairs, but when I did just that, I began to feel guilty about spending so little time with my family.

"Then the last straw I was going to be less cynical and give all the politicians the benefit of the doubt as they talked their way to March 26. And for about a day or so, I was doing fine. Then, tonight I saw Premier Lougheed leaning towards me from the picture tube, the light glinting off his silvering locks, his stocky body tensed perhaps even knotted earnestly as he admitted the PC's had "made a few mistakes" but had called an early election because they were all so eager to know if they had our confidence.
