IN SAN ANTONIO Tucson Qtilizcn Confluence Is Word For HemisFair, Fashions Woman's View WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6, 1968 PAGE 12 By BETTY MILBURN Citizen Woman's Editor Clearly, confluence is the key word. The confluence of civilizations in the Americas themes HemisFair '68. That same confluence inspires the fashions created in Texas for summer, "68. They are clothes of and for the Western Hemisphere -reflecting everything from pre-Columbian fabrics to Aztec and Inca prints, Peruvian colorings, matador and flamenco feelings, American Old South ruffles and frills, 20th Colors -- Pure And Clear Parkland of Dallas likes the look of pure white against clear color. Diagonal white stripes slash across green, linen-like rayon in this shift which is subtly shaped to the figure. century wonder fabrics and the geometries of HemisFair itself. Of course, first you want to know about skirt lengths. Most everything is short, short, short. But in a few of the better collections, a midi or two creep in. Dorcia showed a wow of a patio dress in the mid-calf length. (Incidentally, she -Dorcia Wallace -- wore a luscious midi length brocade to the Texas Fashion Creators' opening cocktail party Sunday at the St. Anthony. There were perhaps half a dozen other elegant midis at the party.) Charles Dickey and Mike Benet both had a midi or two in their collections. Believe me, that ruffled-blouse-full- skirt-at-midi~length look is coming. The only question is 'when. Midis certainly aren't the rule now in Texas, however. Skirts four inches above the knee sometimes are worn with stockings to match, but more often are worn with white stockings and white shoes, tied with a grosgrain ribbon. We've hardly seen patterned hose at all. Colors are HemisFair inspired -- bright, splashy, imp r o b a b l y combined. Too, there's a great deal of black and white. Sherrill Reagan, Miss Wool of Texas, modeled the official HemisFair uniform by Lorch of Dallas for us at lunch yesterday in the Pearl (beer) Pavilion. The outfit is a three- piece black and white geometric print, square necked with short fv!i skirt. Like so many of the pavilions at HemisFair, the Pearl Pavilion is an old house from the urban renewal area which is the site of the fair. The houses have been restored, revamped, occasionally moved. But they have been saved. And indeed, today, the gingerbread trims of some of those old houses provide inspiration for dress designers who are trimming their offerings with similar embroidery. What an immense job the people of San Antonio have done. To mark the 250th anniversary of the founding of San Antonio, they have caused to be created in the very heart of the city, a $156 million world's fair, with a huge convention center, flanked by pavilions, restaurants, rides, and various exhibit halls. They've extended the San Antonio River to run through the HemisFair site and built Fiesta Island and the tower of the Americas, tallest observation tower in the Western Hemisphere. And they're ready to welcome seven million visitors in the 184 days between April 6 and Oct. 6. "And we will be ready," said Mayor Walter McAllister as he welcomed fashion editors on Monday. You'd better consider a stop in San Antonio sometime this summer. HemisFair will be well worth seeing. Romance Of Spain The music of castanets and flamenco guitars seem to accompany Mike Benet's ruffled organza gown. Inspired by the S panish influence of HemisFair '68, the gown is flounced at the V-neck-line, and tiers of ruffles are edged with lace. ---..... "-/ '··... *··-.? 7
