It's High Time For Romantic Era in Clothing By DOROTHY ROE AP Women's Editor NEW YORK «V-It's high Urn for a romantic era, in the opinion of David Gottlieb, a designer who las managed to create a sensation in the New York fashion industrj in a comparatively short time. Definitely Dramatic The cocktail and evening dresse ii. his spring preview dei'initel; dramatic, planned frankly for a: lure and designed to make an woman feel like a dream girl. H uses such fragile and' delicat fabrics as chiffon, lace, net an silk organdie for these creations often combines lace bodices wit clouds of frothy organdie in bouf fant skirts, does tricks with lac appliques and sprinkles Stardust ir the form of sequins. A highlight of his collection is short evening dress of white ne appliqued all over with red lac roses and dramatized with a wic sash of red tafi'eta. As contrast, h shows a slim tube of '.ace tiers, b sectei by a velvet belt. JJke« Wblt« Frosttnr Gottlieb likes white frosting fo his daytime dresses in navy silk dealing out wide capelet collar of lace and embroidered organdi with a lavish hand. These collar form dramatic accents to dark CO tumes, and he froths them wil lace edging, elaborates them wit appliques, spa.rks them wit jewels, does them in double tier and otherwise concerns himse •with frosted frills. Visiting fashion editors windin up a crowded week.of spring fasl ion previews by New York d signers also saw a showing of chl dren's clothes today, observed ne fashions in eyeglass frames an were given a concentrated briefin on the trends in jewelry for 1956— the "precious" look is the thin this year, they were told, and th bold ropes of beads of last seaso now are passe.
