DANIEL BYRON LANDON (Gladys Vernay Richardson) Gladys Richardson Weds Daniel Landon Picking Spring Fabrics ^By FRANCES DIETRICH At a seminar on clothing and textiles, James A. Devlin, marketing specialist for the Klopman Division of Burlington Mills which sells fabric for ready-to-wear, was asked why home sewers can't always find the same fabrics currently on the market in ready-to-wear. According to Mr. Devlin, "Ready-to-wear manufacturers buy fabric 12 months prior to the time the clothing appears in stores. This lead time is necessary for manufacturing, selling and distribution to stores. The same fabric styling is made available to retailers, who sell fabric by the yard. However, these merchants traditionally buy on a short-time margin. They may wait to order from fabric mills until two or three months before the seasonal demand. Some fabric shops play it even closer than that, while they make readings of the market to decide what they think will sell. By the time some fabric store owners place orders, the "hot" fabric featured by ready-to-wear manufacturers is not available in yard goods. Last December, Burlington Klopman, which is the Burlington Mills retail fabric division, issued to customers its swatch and color book for Fall, 1975. The division plans its fabric line early and advises fabric stores about colors and fabric fashions which are important in ready-to-wear. Sometimes, it all comes out even. For example, Whirlaway, a soft, lightweight knit in 65 percent polyester and 35 percent cotton, was sold to dress manufacturers by the Klopman Division and is being featured in popular tee dresses. Fabric stores bought it from Burlington Klopman retail division and it is simultaneously in a variety of resources from the exclusive fabric shop to the warehouse type of fabric store. Of special interest to us right now is the fact that Whirlaway epitomizes the basic spring story in a single fabric. It is available in pale, lovely springlike colors in small, neat patternings, but also in deeper tones such as peach and glaze green, and in dark backgrounds with a small white print. It covers a spectrum of styling from halter top and wrap skirt to V-neck tennis dress to a new departure in sleepwear such as the gown by Formfit Rogers in which the zephyr jersey takes a long T-shirt shape with spaghetti straps. Another unusual aspect of this gown — one of the fabric styles is a navy ground with small white concentric circles. However, in addition to Whirlaway, in yard goods and in ready-to-wear, you'll see more fabric with surface interest such as linenlike weaves, honan, pongee, crepe and plisse. Satin stripes, ateens, chintz, add interesting sheen without shine. Voile, chiffon, georgette continue to make fashion news. And, leno, lawn, batiste, dimity, enjoy a revival in new softened interpretations. Eyelet and lace add a delicate touch. Fabric and fashion are mutually complementary. Soft, easy dressing continues as the contemporary fashion aided and abetted by fluid fabric. This is not to say that everything's soft. That would be monotonous. There's a change of pace in the flexible spring wardrobe. A lightweight knit dress combines with a crisp woven fabric coat. The soft pants-look is updated with pleats and pocket detailing and paired with a shaped and tailored tunic. The favorite twin set styling takes on new zest in a combination of luxurious Ultressa print shirt jacket over a U-neck matte jersey tank top; both worn with crisp-tailored gabardine pants. Dupreme, Wopman's texturized polyester poplin with a degree of "give," is featured by sportswear manufacturers in pants with a wide waistband and skinny belt with stitched creases and back seams. Poplin pants contrast nicely with a topstitched short sleeve blouse in silky crepe.

Now the Americans are reasserting their leadership. Their new footwear is lively, leatherly, often elegant and anything but dull. The real kooky look is out and the prevailing mood is relaxed but never careless. A lot of them were designed specifically for the leisure suits that are making heavy inroads into sport jackets and slacks combinations. The Leather Industries of America picked three teams this year for mid-April presentation as winners of the American Designer Awards: Richard T. Morrison of Jarman Shoes, William Legate and Jack Koenig of Hush Puppies and a four- man team from Laconia Shoes —Robert J. Selig, the firm president, and designers Steven D. Selig, Alexander Mason and Robert Jensen. The big story in the awards was that American-designed and made shoes are giving fashion leadership to a whole new feeling in men's footwear in the United States and abroad, and a number of lines are selling extremely well in Europe instead of vice versa.
