T Mind Your Own Business Be On Guard C12-Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, Nov. 24, 1968 On The Glamour Scene Designers Now Woven In Wedlock To Weavers ligious medals and the like simply mark "refused'' on the cover and return to the post office. The sender then will have to pay return postage. This will probably assure that your name is removed from the company's mailing list and thus eliminate repetition. By ELEANOR LAMBERT After years of calling each other names, American textile people and fashion designers are mad about each other. It's going to be a lovely marriage. By PAT MURPHY SEASONAL NOTE: Along with holly and mistletoe, candles and Christmas cards, the next few weeks, in all likelihood will again bring a flood of Christmas gypsters. Typically, they materialize about the same time that Christmas decorations go up in the stores. Bait ads and fictitious prices, unordered merchandise, tly-by-night merchants and mailorder misrepresentations be on guard against them all. A few pointers. If unordered C.O.D. packages are addressed to you, refuse acceptance and notify your postmaster at once. Postal inspectors will investigate. If unordered merchandise is received which you do not wish to pay for greeting ?ards, books, neckties, pen and pencil sets, key rings, re Come see what linens the brides-to-be have chosen at . . . 1 wmm Mm, tim ' t 1 V 210 Clematis, Downtown Only EXPERIESCE like Ours Assures The Careful Filling Baby !S evils : Shoes for FAT Babies Our Specialty See our complete selection of regular and corrective shoes from tots to teens Formerly, when Celanese, DuPont, Monsanto or another giant fiber company developed a new no-iron, non-crease, water-repellent, dirt-shedding miracle yarn it remained a dark secret at this end. Emissaries took it to Paris to be seen. Designers there received free lengths to play with, and big fat checks if they designed to include a garment of it intheircollections. Later, when American designers wanted to experiment with it, too, the minimum purchase had to be 60 yards. Before he showed his collection, the new fiber was poured into the volume market, where the smallest "buy" is several thousand yards. The habit has almost been kicked but not quite. DuPont's new Quiana, a beautiful facsimile of silk satin with the added virtue of being non-crushable and as washable as a teacup, was infiltrated into the European fashion collections last summer before the home team was allowed a single glimpse of it. Although it is an American-born fiber, the European fabric houses of Staron and Bianchini were given the first rights to weave it. It sells to American fashion houses for 45 to 75 dollars a vard. Most fiber producers, however, are on the American bandwagon now. Allied Chemical, who make Ca-prolan, had promotion people cruising Seventh Avenue all last week to show top designers the company's new Touch, a clinging and non-transparent nylon jersey with a rich silky feel. Pauline Trigere included a black Touch evening pajama in her spring collection. It has a bare midriff, balloon pants and bosom-hugging camisole top, and is appliqued with mammoth red tulips. Elinor Simmons of Malcolm Starr used the new material in pale green for a medieval long-sleeved dress with a moulded bodice and long tight sleeves. Trevira, a new wool-like nylon fiber produced by Hystron in America, was formulated in Germany, but Hystron called on American designers to introduce Trevira here. The fashion show was held in the auction room at the Parke-Bernet Galleries, where the world's record price for a painting, $1,550,000, was paid last month for Renoir's landscape of a Paris bridge. Bancroft, makers of the Banlon jersey we all know well, launched a sister fabric. Bandura, in the resort collections of Oscar de La Renta, Chuck Howard. Jon Haggins. Leo Narducci, Anne Fogarty, Gayle Kirkpa-trick and Adri. It has a heavy texture with a rich matte finish and the ability to take brilliant colors. (Lots of synthetics don't dye well. ) Easy-care fabrics are no longer fated to begin with fancy promotion stunts in the French couture, only to end up as house dresses. The designers and textile manufacturers together are making them count as fashion.

BOOTKRY GIRLISH LOOK - A giant paisley printed in soft focus on white Bandura crepe, was Chuck Howard's choice for this carefree dress with ballooning skirt and sleeves. For all its bulky look, the dress can be rolled tight as a T-shirt in a weekend bag. Fabrics Internationale TWIN SKIRTS - Leo Nar-ducci, belongs to the leave-it-alone school in fashion. When he finds a fabric he likes, like this black and white print on Bandura Crepe, he lets it fall in rich fullness below a shallow tank top. Instead of pants, or a culotte. he coins the phrase, "twin skirts." 4:00 ; NOW OPEN 10:30 Closed Saturday EXCLUSIVE IH!lMKIN(i FABRICS 833-5171 26 Peruvian Ave. Palm Beach t, WHITEHALL WAY, PALM BEACH, flOHIDA ii fUea&ci to fi relent tie LET'S SQUARE OFF THOSE POINTED TOED SHOES Put On Holiday Face J i'moiuc (WE ROUND TOO) BEFORE conducted i, 7 DIXIE SHOE REPAIR J (acrot from Burdines) ORTHOPEDIC A$D SHOE CORRECTION OUR SPECIALTY Luggage Repair Golf Bag Repair You wouldn't wear an around-the house or an office dress to the festive parties and family gatherings which are such a delightful part of the upcoming Holiday season, so why wear your evervdav face? Beauty authorities offer the following timely tips to help you achieve an exciting new look for these occasions and suggests that you start practicing now so that your "holiday look" will be perfect by AFTER the time the festive season arrives. A glittering iridescent quality is highlighting holiday make-up this year, so for extra impact some special evening, be a "snow queen" highlight your cheeks and eyes with soft white frosted blusher. The eyes have it more than ever, so make the most of yours with eye-liner, multi-shades of eye shadow, mascara and fashion lashes. Em-plusi.t the lower lashes, too. Make them appear longer and fuller by using eye-liner to draw on additional evelashes. Also for evening, colors bright and clear but with some depth of tone provide new, now lipstick and nail color drama. Bold blush shades are ideal examples. Light, bright foundations, such as the new neutral beige shades of make-up are a Der-loct background tr every imaginable color accent and light up winter drabness generally. If your "crowning glory" needs some help, treat it to a soft color to add subtle highlights or to create a dramatic change. vfonday, tyeuuatf 10, 1969 at eiyfdjfiiiitif o'cocA Heit 0a tn 0$eac S'fuditoriun Hvit 0a tn 0eai, &orida Handbag Repair Zipper Repair CUSTOM DYEING ON ALL SHOES & LEATHER GOODS 118 NO.
