Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 - THE LETHBRIDGE HER AID - Friday, March 16, 1973 rpHE aura 0f romance clung softly to the grand ballroom at the Holiday Inn last night,, as muted chandeliers glowed down on a fantasy of fashion from a bygone era. It .was the second and final nightN of the Renaissance fashion show, Models by Contempra, bedecked in rich satins, taffetas, ribbons and laces, displayed a collection of more than 60 gowns from the past, designed and made by Lucille Kraemer of Calgary. The fabulous replicas ranged from the hoops and crinolines of the 17th-and 18th centuries, through the bustles and leg o' mutton sleeves of the 90s, to the saucy, flirty, flapper fads of the roaring 20s. A few rare and delightful early 20th century originals were also on view. One of the highlights of the show was the newest addition to the Kraemer collection - a group of beautifully-detailed copies taken from movies like My Fair Lady, Hello Dolly, The King and I, Mary Pop-pins and The Great Waltz. The collection has been widely shown across Canada, and several of Mrs. Kraemer's costumes are now on permanent display in the Toronto and Medicine Hat museums, the Glenbow Foundation and Heritage Park in Calgary, and the University of Saskatoon. Joan Waterfield carried the commentary with her usual friendly charm, along with Terry Bland, and soprano Sheila Pisko entertained with songs from My Fair Lady and Mary Poppins. Bustles had just become passe, but parasols and picture hats captured the hearts of gallant bewhiskered gentlemen of the late 90s. No fashionable young lady of 1910 would be caught dead at Ascot on Ladies Day, without a brand new en^ semblo in the very latest mode. The fan was a very necessary accessory to the art of ladylike flirtation, which reached its peak on the pre-lib 18th century scene. You've come a long way, baby... Legs were modestly covered 'limbs,' never never to be exposed to the lecherous gaze of the Opposite Sex, in 1901. WATCH THAT WATER! - "Kris" Krishnaswaml, noted biolo-gist and health specialist who spent a full year studying Canada's water problems, explains in Weekend Magazine this Saturday why he's so concerned about our drinking water problems. He tells about Infections and diseases caused by water impurities, how to check water to see if it's safe, and why the whole concept of drinking water must be changed.
