Wedneiday, July 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HEBALP 19 Says Designer Sydney Wragge Dress Style Outranks Length NEW YORK (CP) Be re- assured, fall fashion may seem arbitrary but several top d e s i g n e r s have flatly slated that the skirt length fu- rore is exaggerated out of all proportion to its real import- ance. Says Sydney Wragge, head of a 35-year-old haute couture firm: "Well-designed clothes arc ageless. Think of fall fashions as just another look. It doesn't ouldatc or outmodc what you have." Comforting words for the bewildered reader of fashion stories. Kasper, designing for Joan Leslie, advises you to look at the dress style first; the longth is secondary. And Mar- shall Klugman of STJ en- Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I was alone when my first daughter was born because my husband said be couldn't be around anyone in pain. When the second girl was born he was stone drunk. The nurse asked him to go sit in the car and sober up. It's been this way for the past 25 years. I could never depend on him for anything. Our two daughters were married the same year and divorced within weeks of each other. My husband and I have always been at war over these girls. Whenever they wanted something and I said no, they went to him and he said yes. It's been that way since they were old enough to talk. So, of course, they are all messed up. Now that both girls are divorced, they have moved back into the house. They pay no board or room. I am ex- pected to cook for them, clean up' after them, do their laundry and take their telephone messages-. I told my husband I raised them once and once is enough. He says this is their home as much as it is mine and if I don't like it, I can get out. My health is shot. I take too many pills and I drink too many Vodka sours. Our home is an aimed camp them, against me. If anyone ever needed help. I do. Please try. Bottom. DEAR TOUCHING: Is there someone you can visit for a few weeks? A sister a cousin a friend? Your doctor should inform your husband that you need a rest and the sooner the better. When you return, call a tribal council meeting. Tell them you are going on strike. Refuse to do the girls' laundry or clean up after them. Enlist your clergy- man's help. You need someone to talk to and someone who will talk to your husband and daughters. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Is it possible that I am allergic to my brother's wife? Whenever I am around her for more than 20 minutes I break out in a rash and my breathing becomes labored h'ke asthma. I never cared for her when we were in school together and I like her less now. The brother she married was my favorite. I say WAS because she changed him. Is it possible that this girl makes me sick? Lotion DEAR CAL: It's more than possible. It's very likely. See a doctor. And tell him everything you have told me. When romantic glances turn to warm embraces is it love or chemistry?

Enclose a long, stamped, self addressed envelope and 35 cents in coin with your request. dorses this viewpoint by not- ing that a young dress is a young dress and an old-look- ing dress is an old dress. It has nothing to do with length. But if you're still uncon- vinced, worried about your short skirts and also money conscious, several designers at the American designer showings have suggested a so- lution. Buy pants to wear with your midis, making them tu- nics. The fabrics needn't match. In fact, the new fall fashions use such combina- tions as tweed with jersey, worsted twill denim with satin. ANOTHER SUGGESTION Or you can invest in one midi, front-buttoned skirt and wear it over your short dress, leaving sufficient buttons un- done to reveal the split level hemline effect. Again, differ- ent fabrics are quite in fash- ion. However, if you're in the happy circumstance of a de- pleted wardrobe, you can emerge in some exciting new looks, which most designers agree are more important than skirt lengths. By far the most recurring theme is the gaucho look, in- troduced last spring and now ranging from Anne Klein's casual leather pants and vest with cheetah-printed shirt to Suzy Perette's late-day gau- chs> dress, black velvet skirted and satin shirted. Another important look is the peasant. Folk councils across the country will find dramatic competition in such costumes as Donald Brooks' Tyrolean suits with peasant braid trim or Perette's peas- ant-printed wool challis dresses. Coats, 'of course, are fall's mainstay, and the newest look here, as in dresses, is the nar- row top and elongated skirt. But many coats are full skirted, falling gracefully to midcalf or ankle. But the real maxi of last winter is dead. The wrap coat is another style to watch closely. Coat fabrics include duvetyn (newly returned to fashion and featured by several de- Donegal tweed and crisp-surface wools. Many coats are lavishly fur trimmed. It's your cue. Lower last year's short coat into the fashion picture with a wide fur border. Capes abound in the collections, mostly ankle- length and voluminous for evening wear. A return after an absence of several years is the layered look. It can be a buttoned skirt over trousers-and-shirt plus a bolero. The cffec needn't be bulky. As fashion authority Eleanor Lambert says in her fall forecast, tire fabrics are featherweight and the pants mostly slim. "It's like a pastry, layer over layer of goodies." If you're an extrovert, fall has other goodies for you, too, as slit sides for late-day dresses and plunge necklines that are daring but not too bosom-revealing. What about colors? The whole range of mauve-plum-lilac is popular. Black remains in the top list in every tiling from coats to late-day clinging Jersey gowns. White, beige, brown ard grey are mainstays. There's the occasional shock of brilliant red or bright ca- nary yellow. Prints are mostly small, murky and more for background than eye appeal. But the most important in- fluence for most girls and women will be the colored hose, to match shoes. George Halley in his perfection collec- tion showed this trend of total color look. A wine, full-skirted coat learned with a flat, pleated, lilac jersey dress and added the complete look with Mac turban, hose and wine shoes. So you see, as Pat Sandier says: "The longer lengths are only part of the fall story. Gone is the tough chic of the '60s. The look of the '70s is soft, gentle and veiy femi- nine."
