More than 300 people, in 30 committees, have been - wo'rkirig for weeks on the presentation of the show and the selection of the clothes to be shown. Each outfit, from top to bottom and including the smallest button or bit of trimming will be significant. This is a show to watch. This is a show that will leave no doubt in the mind of anyone in the country as to what j women will" buy and wear during the months from now until fall.

The best clothes, in the best possible taste, ore to be the feature of; the prophetic, carefully edited trend-setting presentation. "'""In a way. Fashion Futures wil be more of a style show than a fashion show," says good-looking extremely capable Dorothy Shaver, one of the directors of the event. ""In other words, we are going to try to select and present clothes that depend on line and' fabric for their chic, on inspired colors and decorations for eye-catching interest. We are more interested in promoting good style than a little •whim, a sudden fad, a flash of utter nonsense that might be a fash- ion-cf-the-moinent but never a style. . "Not that a single' one of the 500 models -won't have definite eye- appeal. Each will be a thing of lamor in its particular category, vhether it's an afternoon dress or i buckle on a .shoe. But each will a thing that a woman of taste vcn't tire of auci discard long before it is time to stop wearing summer clothes. Even the little whims, the nonsense that may be- ome a fad will be wnat' a smart woman-may wear with distinction and self-confidence. "New York is the fashion center of the world.
