'Til 9 Fashion pro forecasts trends ahead By PEACE MOFFAT NKW YORK (AP)-Virginia Sorcm's job is to publish 12 books a year showing fashions women will want to buy. Sounds easy enough, but there's one hitch—she has to work over a year ahead of time—forecasting fashion trends long before clothes are off the designers' sketch pads, much less in the stores. How does she do it? The fashion coordinator, catalog division of J.C. Penney Co., explains: "I talk to a lot of fashion sources, read a lot of domestic periodicals and go to all the fashion showings. Just looking at people helps. And I'm familiar with the mark-down racks at the stores—what hasn't sold. Fashion makes sense, loo. You don't have to be the smartest graduate of Kadcliffe to know that certain seasons will bring on certain colors and styles." Mrs. Sonm, a bright blue- eyed woman, with a trim tailored look, wryly notes that, "there are no erasers in a catalogue," so she has to be sure she knows what she's talking about. She's quick to point out that her work is a team effort but, nevertheless, she's the one who is responsible for the $11 million in paper and $2 million in ink alone that go into those catalogs each year. The way fashion trends are born has changed in the past 10 years, Mrs. Sorem says. There used to be filtering down process," she points out. "The couture houses in Paris would originate trends that would then find their way across the onean to New York City and the expensive stores on !i7th Street. Eventually, those same looks would end up at tho cheaper stores, but it was months after the original had appeared in Europe. "This started changing a decade ago," she goes on. "People in the United States needed clothes to wear for their active lives. In England, Ihere was an uprising of youth. Fashions started coming from the young people on the streets. As a result, trends today come from all over the world." According to this fashion experts, today's look has two main ingredients- individuality and a casual manner. "Women don't wanl to look all alike," Mrs. Sorem says. "Now they can buy separates, put them together and change the look for a job, or for a date." She attributes this individuality partly to the ill-fated midi skirt. "When designers Cooking cues Cooked tongue is an "ace" in the refrigerator for hot- weather meat platters or for combining with salads for a cold meal. It's easy to cook and chill a fresh or smoked beef tongue when convenient for future use. Just cover with water, cover pot tightly and simmer until tender, 2% to 3% hours. Plunge tongue in cold water, remove skin and chill. Slice as desired. tried to foist the midi off on women, ant' found it didn't work, they realized they couldn't make women buy something just to be fashionable. We don't wear our sleeves thu same length, :=o why should women have to wear their skirts the same length? "The casual look can r^ misunderstood," she goes on "It doesn't mean torn sneakers. II can actually mean elegant, and the same care and planning should gr> into a casual look as it doei into a formal one. It dots mean a life style that, fits what we're doing today, with do's and don'ts replaced by politeness and consideration." Mrs. Sorem became interested in fashion at an carlv age. At 14, she was a in the Minneapolis-Si. Pa il area where she grew up. She attended the University of Minnesota, but says with a laugh, "f was absolutely uninterested in the who> thing." She married, moved to New York City, had two daughters and stayed at home until the youngest was in school all day. "All that time, though, I was planning what I going to do," she says. She worked in commercial photography for eight years before joining Penney in 19K2 Although declining to be specific about her fashion forecasts — "That would be giving information away !o the competition" — Mrs. Sorem is willing to talk in gencnil terms about future fashion trends: "There has been a marked I r c n cl towards menswoar fabrics for years," she says. "Men have always had a neat, tailored look, so women hnve taken what is attrac'iv about that style. You didn t have to bt 1 very smart :o know that meant a layered look, with chunky-heeled shoes. "Now the signs are out for a softer look, i n two piece outfits and pants. I do think dresses will make a comeback, like the short cocktail dress. In 197;! there is going to be a different look for shoes and sleeves. And women will wear their shir! 1 ; open at the collar — with iust a hint of jewelry showing."
