So, tlie Board of Trade has in- ! vited six leading Mayfair design- ' ers to prepare models of easy-fit- clothes for women. A recent showing indicated that war's "austerity 1 ' regulations on Bite of News Moelly Personal for ..a party yesterday afternoon at clothes need not necessarily mean herihome. - lack of style. The main reason for restrictions on yardage, decoration and general trimming is mostly a question of labor and material.

Each of the .six has been asked to make a model coat, suit and dress. There will only be 61 coupons instead of e-3 allotted for the coming year starting next month. This works out to about four and a half coupons a month for men and women alike. Few women are 1 left with any coupons at all at this juncture and in most families the men folk have been cajoled into, giving up a few now and r again—a perfectly legitimate operation provided the coupons remain in the family. Utility shoes are scheduled to make tjheir appearance pn the market also some time in June. Here, too, the Government does not want austerity interpreted in terms of clumsy, ill-fitting footwear. There are to be no restrictions in sizes and fittings but such things as wedge, or higher than 2 1-4 inch, heels will disappear. Utility shoes will be free of cardboard insoles, all uppers will be guaranteed leather, and there will be four qualities—extra cheap, cheap, medium aiid best. No attempt to produce a standard shoo is envisaged; it proved a complete failure in the last war. A campaign is now being started to .urge all young women, anyhow, to go stockingless during the coming three or four months.
