i l j ; - " ir- r -rff ON FASHION Miss Deborah Leisure Griffith and Leisure Troth Told Mr. and Mrs. John Bacon Leisure of Pasadena have announced 4 the engagement of their daughter Deborah Kay to Dwight John Griffith, son of Mrs. John D. Griffith of Newport and the late Mr. Griffith. . The bride-elect's father, an insurance agent, is executive vice president of Leisure, Werden & Terry Agency, Los Angeles. Miss Leisure is attending USC where she is affiliated with Alpha Delta PL She was a Las Madrinas debutante in 1970. The future bridegroom was graduated cum laude from USC where he is attending law school. PARKING Continued from Third Page who is attending Pepper-dine. There is a "a girl Friday to keep the boys in line." She is Lana Freistat, a UCLA graduate. There are six party coordinators. All crew members are bonded and licensed. They Care "We do enough party business," says Sandler, "to help send a crew of 45 boys through college. They make between $2.50 and $3 an hour and we pool our tips. But, at the request of a hostess, we will refuse to accept tips." The crew is screened very carefully. "Those selected," says Sandler, "are sincere, personable and polite. They care." There have never been any problems with honesty. "We have never had anything stolen. There have been no accidents or claims against us. We have never had a complaint. Nothing but compliments." About the only problem is when it rains. The attendants use umbrellas to walk the guests to the door. But crew members "get totally drenched and numb from the rain." Sandler's boosters ' include Karl Levin of Abbey Rents, Beverly Hills, who says, "I've known him since he was a youngster. He is a fine young man, so conscientious. If we have one or more parties an evening he visits them all to see that everything is under control." Tactful Type Harry Finley of Flower Fashion, says, "Sandler is always efficient and always on time. And he is always patient and understanding with the guests as they leave the party, sometimes feeling no pain and short of temper." Sandler got his idea for the Parking Lot business when he was in high school and used to, park cars when members of his family gave parties. "The business," he says, "has been a lot of work, but it has also been a lot of fun." Sandler, an alumnus of UCLA, is doing graduate work in political science and United. States history. He does press photography on the side and is thinking of a career in journalism. "But first," he says, "I am going to law school. That is my ultimate goal." Anniversary Program by Service Group OURS, a local service group and member of the Community Relations Conference of Southern California, will hold its 15th anniversary program today at 3 p.m. at 5733 Venice Blvd. For more information call Marian Savage at 399-4337. Cunningham Sportswear With Flair REALITY FASHIONS "When I decided to produce a sportswear line I was determined to do a collection with a high level of design at realistic prices," said swimwear manufacturer Bob Cunningham during a personal appearance and informal modeling of his fall-winter collection in the Town and Travel section at Bullock's Westwood. . Cunningham's two designers, Christine Albers and Nellica Beitner, have provided a high level of design in clothes with a great deal of fashion albeit very wearable. Cunningham has held the prices from $60 to $95. The sizing is just a realistic 6 to 14 and promising 16s next season. The fashion flair is probably .most, apparent in Christine Alber's cossack tunic blouse, and swirling circular skirt of printed acrylic knit. Another interesting innovation is a striped chal-lis wrap blouse that leaves a lot of decolletage protected by a tiny matching bra. These are teamed with solid-color pants. Nellica Beitner, who is bit more tailored-minded than the other designer, turns out a pantsuit in a spaced geometric print. The jacket, when worn unbelted, streaks, slim and sleek to mid-hip above slim matching pants. As Cunningham has his own factory, where he also produces his swimsuit lines, he has great quality control. "I demand has fine workmanship," he says. "That's why I pay my workers by the hour rather than by the piece. There's no incentive to rush and skimp on the work." Fabrics in the collection include rayon crepe and challis, polyester and cotton poplin, acrylic knits. The holiday line, not yet in the store includes glitter knits, sculptured panne and chiffon. FAST HAIR In and out blanket that can double as a fur towel when the sun goes down." ZZZZ GO THE ZIZZORS And now there's a new haircutting instrument that is said to guarantee happy endings. It comes from West Germany, but it was designed and made for the Magic Mirror salons here. According to Dale Scott, the Magic Mirrors principal is responsible for Zizzors. "They give a smoother, better haircut than scissors. Hair cut with them can't end up looking like an artichoke." The price of a Zizzors cut is the same as any other Magic Mirrors haircut, $7 or $11 with a shampoo and blow dry. AND NOW THE FILM-QUAKE? Joel Schumacher, the fashion whiz kid who helped youth-quake the '60s as a ready-to-wear designer for Paraphernalia and has been spending the '70s designing costumes for such movies as "Sleeper" and "Blume in Love," is about Issi 3ngtle Cime Sun, August 18, 1974-Part X 5 to turn director. Beginning Sept 9, Schumacher will start shooting "Virginia Hill," starring Dyan Cannon. He also wrote the script for the film, which will be presented as a TV movie. A SCHOLARSHIP, TRIP AND JOB Nancy Dimmick of Whittier has won a 'nationwide design contest sponsored annually by the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. Miss Dimmick's winning sketches, along withj those by first runner-up ' Victor Ybarbo of South El 'Monte and second runner-up Nancy McKnight of Costa Mesa, plus 75 other.' entries, will be exhibited; at Bullock's, co-sponsor of the contest v In addition to a year's scholarship at the sponsoring school, Miss Dimmick will receive an expenses-paid European study trip" and temporary employment in Bullock's advertising" department COSSACK BLOUSE - Designed by Bob Cunningham, blouse combines a tunic top with softly gathered skirt. DECOLLETAGE DESIGN Matching bra makes open front of striped challis tie jacket, that much more wearable. Times photos by Kathleen Ballard ' of the beauty salon in less than an hour is the latest gambit at the Aida Grey salon in'Beverly Hills. "Time is of the essence to women today," says Mrs. Grey. "And we're moving with the times." Armando, formerly of the Sassoon salon in Beverly Hills, is the new stylist who provides his fast architectural cut, shampoo and Wow dry in 45 minutes. There will be a separate section devoted to this work. Prices will range from $10 to $35, depending' on hair length. Another innovation at the salon is a new approach to scalp and hair treatment all with natural products. The tab: $5 to $10. , FUR TOWELS, ANYONE? First it was patchwork quilts. Then patchwork clothes. And, more recently, patchwork-printed wallpaper. Now .a Beverly Hills furrier reports brisk sales for patchwork, fur blankets.
