Prom Helen Fraser, director of the Barbizon School of Modeling, who puts students through these new fa.shiou-pEiues, come tips which can be used with profit. Take, first, the art of clearing a bus or -street-car step in an ankle- tight skirt, Miss Fraser teaches models the technique ot using both hands, gathering up and lifting a skirl nt the side seams lor the climb, us grandma did during those horsc- d-busKS' ftny.s. For tho climb up less-steep stair .steps, our teacher recommends us- j ing one hand to pluck up a lon-j ' skirt at the knee in front. This j maneuver, Miss Fraser maintains, enables you to slide up a skirt sufficiently in take a step unhampered and tu keep hemline safe from soil. To walk more gracefully in hobbling hemlme.s, accommodate your stride to the narrowness of the .^kirt. actvise.s Miss Fraser. The problems posed by fashions with extravagant yardage are solv- ed, she says, by literally keeping your long lull skirls in hand. To sit in one gracefully, gather fulness to one side in (lie palm of your hand and keep the hemllns clear of the floor by pulling th» skirt up slightly before you settle down. When climbing .stairs or entering an automobile, pluck, up a full skirt at the knee in front with one hand. To keep a skirt from trailing when you descend stalls, catch fulness in back with one hand and swing the hemline slightly away from your legs to keep it out of the path oi shoe heels.
