INDEPENDENT-PRESS-TELEGRAM--W-3 LONO BEACH 11, CALIF.. SUNDAY, JULY I*, 1941 Style Copy Cats to Lead Dog's Life This Fa By MARY ELLIS I. C-T fuhlon Editor NEW YORK -- When it comes to fall fashions, most anything goes. Especially money. Clothes for the coming season are fitted or full, long or short, understated or opulent, colorful or sub- dued' (mostly s u b d u e d ) , trimmed or untrimmed. There's a silhouette to flatter every figure -- particularly the lady with a fat pocketbook. * * * * NEW STYLE ideas created by the 31 members of the New York Couture Group are so lavishly expensive and so intricately engineered that they defy emulating--either by do-it-yourself seamstresses or popular-priced manufacturers. As Liz Bernkopf, fashion ed of the Boston Globe, so aplly put it: "What will the simple folk do?" Highly technical tailoring, welt seaming, insert pleats and godets, shapings from bias cuts, intricately cut shoulder and waistlines defy the amateur seamstress. Many creations are so opulently decorated that they represent a king's ran- some in jewels and furs. Take Samuel Winston's beautifully lavish collection. As grand finale, five evening flnor-length dazzlers appeared on the ramp at one time. The total cost: A cool $15,000!

Although there are deep colors in three favorite Â· ranges--green from spnice to darkest evergreen, berry tones from strawberry to grape, plum and eggplant, also brown from amber to walnut--the emphasis is on subdued, sometimes lifeless, hues. New styles have extravagant trimmings--or none at all. Beads and jewels are applied as if by a jeweler, usually paving an entire dress. Every type of fur-bearing animal (except the copy cat) is represented. Sable, chinchilla, l y n x , nutria, French seal, fox, jeopard are used as collars, linings and bandings. Lizard and kid lealher are used as bindings on wool dresses. This holds true for strcel, t h r e e - quarter and seven- eighths length coats in combination with either a dress or an overblouse and skirt, There's no parting, . for instance, of Monte Sano's clutch coat in brown zigzag t w e e d lined in the sheer wool plaid of its boatneck dress . . . nor, for evening, of his three-quarter black fox coat shimmering in longhaired glory over a matte btack dress in sleek fantasia silk. ' Capes and cape effects appear in most collections. A new sleeve treatment sets the sleeve forward and so low it appears to be an extension of a cape. HERE ARE some liigh- lights from collections: Wilson Folmar, man behind the seams at Edward Abbott, tops a taffeta belled skirt with s t r e t c h fabric b o d i c e . . . puts a 1930s swing skirt on a black dress with bloused bodice . . . does evening crepes that wear their own jewelled brooches. Brannell puts band and bow around the hemline of a magenta suit . . . outlines the slim hem of a burgundy velvet evening gown with Russian sable. Jane Derby, whose daring, dashing sequinned evening pajamas of a couple seasons ago startled, then started, the fashion world into a din- iicr-pajama furore, this season lias gay, frivolous "sul- NEVER were materials NOT TO SAY she can't more lavish and exciting, have one without the other, For R new layered look, but the woman who sets they are ridged, puffed, styles for a separate coat blistered, double w o v e n , this season isn't being fair carved, crosswnven in one to herself.

Straight coat is charcoal wool, faced in white and grey plaid long hair wool as is short sleeve sheath which accompanies it. LONG BEACH Margaret Lois Purcell, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Everett Purcell of Portuguese Bend, became the bride of Clifford Stanley Foerster at a recent late afternoon ceremony i n N e i g h b o r h o o d Church of Palos Verdcs. Dr. Albert E. King officiated. The new Mrs. Foorster, who was escorted to the altar by her father, wore a gown of white organza over taffeta with cap sleeves and Sabrina neckline. Her veil of illusion lace was attached to a tiara of pearls and sequins and her cascade bouquet was of white orchids and stephanotis.

Ben Reig gives' fashion "fur-ore" to a black cocktail dress by covering it with a solid glitter of se- tjuined leopard spots. Exclusive with Herbert Sondheim is glistening lame silk tweed--one bias-worked in plaid, the other in hound's tooth checks--worked into a simple after-five blouson dress. ' With all this glamor, a demarcation between the haves and have-nots will be clearly defined this year by the apparel on any woman's back.
