«E--July 23, 1972 Sunday Gazette-Mail ---- Charleston, W»»t Virslnl* s Works of Art' Hand-Painted Gowns Premiered They call them "walking works of art." And they are. That's an appropriate description of the hand-painted gowns done by the Third Floor, w h i c h were pre- miered at a style s h o w sponsored by the Fayette Art Group at the White Oak Country Club in Oak Hill. The gowns, bearing names like "Blue Roses," "Summer Flowers," "Passion Flower," National Convention To Be Topic of Meeting Mrs. Rose Jean Kaufman, cochairman of West Virginians for McGovern, will be speaker during a meeting of the Kanawha County Democratic Woman's Club at 7:30 p.m. Monday in the Kanawha County Courthouse. Mrs. Kaufman, who is ac- Men's Fashions Show Soft Touch Men's fashion is going soft. That's the Men's Fashion Association's way of saying that brushed, beefy or pile fabrics are gaining ground with the American male. Flannels, velvets, corduroys, a variety of knits and even brushed leathers are part of the trend. tive in cultural and civic affairs, will speak on the national convention in Miami. All women are invited and candidates are urged to be present for the meeting and to meet the Democratic women of Kanawha County. Births 'MORNING GLORY' PATIO DRESS Miss Sally Drake GRAPES AND GREEN FOLIAGE Mrs. Herbert To! ley Individuality 5 Key to Sportswear How he mixes and matches his leisure wear will rate a lot of attention from the American male this fall. That's the report from the Men's Fashion Association who notes that the "layered look" and "tops and bottoms' 1 will be two major fall fashion concepts for men. Both trends are based on color and pattern coordination, on blending or contrasting to put a look together. The layered look goes a step further than the tops-bottom idea b y combining a d d i t i o n a l items, sometimes involving as many as three different tops. In both cases the result is an individual look, the man putting it together to his own taste, determining his own fashion image. It requires some fashion know-how in handling contrasts, putting pattern with pattern and letting color play against color. "Men are ready for it," says Ken O'Keefe, MFA Fashion Director. "They have the confidence to play this mating game--especially on weekends when men try to develop a fashion look that would shake 'em up back at the office." The tops and bottom combination is usually one-half solid, one-half pattern. It is often based on casual jeans, though it will work with dress jeans and knit slacks as well. Knits have long been a favorite top and they still are. though this season there is a trend to bold printed sport shirts. Some of the combos are prepackaged by the manufacturer, but they mustn't look as if they were. THOUGH IT broke into mtnswear this past spring, tall holds the best possibilities for the layered look--which is sometimes a sweater over a shirt, or a sweater over another sweater. Outdoors, it calls for a third layer via a jacket or coat. This is fundamentally a knit, fashion with sweaters, turtlenecks. sleeveless pullovers coming into play. A varie- 'In Vest Meant for Fall ty of interpretations are possible, with most men preferring to wear pattern over solid. It is all paving the way to a l)ig season for sweaters and men will have the largest style variety over to pick from. Patterned sweaters, especially small and noal, w i l l he among the leaders. The smaller sweat- e r , s l e e v e l e s s o r with capped sleeves, in solids and patterns will he an integral part of the layered look. Scoop necks, V-necks and lurtlenecks all play a part. Look for cardigans, hulkies and cable knits to round out the selection. A knit sport shirt that is tailored like a woven is fall's sport shirt innovation. You will see it in a range of pal- terns, especially plaids and argylcs, and many solids for wear with the layered look. F 1 a n n e 1 is another key sportshirt fabric, in cotton, wool and polyester blends. Sport shirts have much less of the dress shirt look of past seasons. Plaid is the outstanding sport shirt pattern, expressed in many ways including tartans, glens checks and beefy- types. Bold prints worked un dark or black grounds is a promising new idea with a different fashion feeling. Almost any season, outerwear is a fashion leader with i n n o v a t i o n s i n models, lengths, fabrics and details. This fall the tone of the market is set by the rugged, spectator look, featuring beefy fabrics and bold patterns. It sets the stage for a comeback by the duffle coat and the benchwarmer, f o r q u i l t e d models and ski jackets. In fabrics, leather will be a winner and corduroy will be strong. Wools are slated for a resurgence. Smooth nylon will be on hand in authentic versions of the Ah- Force parka and the bomber jacket. STORM COATS are a fashion item, appearing in various lengths and in wool and corduroy in addition to the familiar twill. Some will have fur collars, real or synthetic. Leather has come out of its Christmas gift, super luxury status and achieved broad across-the-board a p p e a l . Suedes, pig=kins, solf kidskins are important. It is notable in all lengths from the bomber jacket to the trench coat. Some new colors are offered including dark blue, reds and greens. There is even a reversible model, with different leather and different styling one each side. In all outerwear, plaid will he the top pattern, especially in bold, blanket plaids. Trims such as gun patches, elbow patches and heavy zippers will be prominent. There will be fewer belts and belted models compared to a year ago. In the case of men's knit slacks it was a matter of try 'em, you'll like them, and that is just what happened. Now knits dominate dressier slack fashion as they continue to move toward a 50-50 balance between patterns and solids. This year's patterns will be less bold with checks, window panes, neat geometries, glen plaids and tartans favored. All types of plaids will be on hand, and these go from restrained to very bold. The ever-popular jean is moving toward a dressier look, and will pop up in velvet, corduroy, cotton velour and flannel. They will often be matched to an outer jacket for a great effect. In the new fabrics and neat patterns, jeans come out of the strictly youthful category and broaden their appeal to men of all ages. There's a new slack idea that may break the jeans strangle hold on young men. This is a fuller cut pant with pleats and often cuffed. It comes in dressy solids and small patterns in a variety of fabrics. PRINTED PATTERN A985 SIZES 8-18 A NEW HIGH IX FALL FASHION is the Vest and Skirt duo. played with variations.

The third member of The Third Floor is Mrs. E. E. Bibb Jr., also of Beckley, who handled the commentary for the showing. Fashioned along Vogue patterns, the gowns in the collection are created with techniques based on sarasso, a Japanese form of batik. * * * MODELS FOR the evening were members of the Fayette Art Group, Mrs. Herbert Tolley, Mrs. Ivan H. Bush Jr., Sally Drake, Mrs. Thomas L. Gent and Mrs. Donald P. Lively, all of Oak Hill, and Mrs. Frank R. Garrett of Mount Hope. One of the most unusual gowns was designed for the commentator's mother-in-law, Mrs, E. E. Bibb Sr. of Beckley. It was in off-white silk emblazoned with daisies, like those Mrs. Bibb carried in her wedding. And that's a suitable motif since Mrs. Bibb and her husband are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary. When guests arrived for the showing, they were greeted by a dressmaker's mannequin holding an artist's palette, the paints being colorful blooming flowers. Mrs. Wayne P. Myers Jr. of Oak Hill furnished piano music for the show and Jane Foster was the soloist. President of the Art Group is Mrs. W. P. Bettinger. ·\sV *f£Ste- :·/»'****.*, ***VlOKv» ,*t?tt, .*,',«»..*jw». : '^ I SO. CHAS. YMCA PRESENTS THE GRAND OLE OPRY Music City, USA-Nashville-Trix! by bus.stay at Matador Motor Inn.
