T A modes and models. From all tokens

J J Wo will, I think, reach, the height of the
. picturesque in fashions during this sea-
v Bon. We already have before 'us glimpses o Gainsborough at his .best
and the days of the Empire at their worst.
Hj Afternoon and evening costumes are becoming more costly and
exquisitely beautiful, If such a thing Is possible, but the beauty lies
j In the lines and draping, and the sumptuousness Is all In the -fabric
i rather than In ornate design and decoration.
I aiay have made this statement before, but really it does seem
as though never before had I observed 'such, glorious, glorified mate
rials. Impossible to paint-the lily, I am told, but how foolish! Here I
find that we are brocading chiffons, and if that Is not painting tho lily,

modish fabrics this Winter for reception and opera cos
tumes. It is so supple, so luxurious, so delightfully
l yielding when draped even on ungraceful figures. But
wait very soon I hope to send you photographs of 'wim
some of my latest designs created in this delightful

in Its heavier moments makes such adorable sport coats,
but in its lighter moments makes superb tailored cos- w-
tumes of a beauty that makes the feminine soul groan with anguish flW'KP
when denied their possession. Wm
I do not think that duvtyn will ever become popularized, it is very kP
expensive, and if cheapened would lose the very quality that makes it SSStM
so desirable. Some time I will show a costume developed in this be- PIJ
witching fabric that will please even the most captious critic I know, SH

Lady Duff-Gordon's Paris establishment brings her M s

mercury wings. J
As you will see from all these plotures, hats are small this -.Win

I am always happy -when my clients approve of corduroy for then &
trot-about costumes. It Is so workable and so becoming to every one,' 3 g
but I can see that duvtyn will give corduroy and even velvet a close ij
run before the Winter closes that is, in the world whioh.careai.not J
how much it spends. q
This blue duvtyn costume has the newest Eton jaoketwttii s po-

the trouserette skirt.
The girdle Is sumptuous. It came from an antique shop," and was
at'one time used at Versailles. Just between ourselves, it was at one I
time part of the splendid hangings of the palace. In great contrast to
the gorgeousness of the; girdle and the daring of the skirt Is Che prim J

And now. for my brave and bonny Cossack Costume, a perfect de
light to me, for of course you remember my fondness for blue serge.
And this serge is of a quality that is supple, but silkily heavyth
kind that will "wear forever." if that be an advantage in these days of.
the quick change.

I not dignify the slight fold at the left knee by calling it drapery.

The robe, with its fish-tail train looped up, is a dull blue charmeuse, fit:
lined with dull green. An odd touch is tho fur boa slanted about the fife
hips. The lamp-shade tunic of blue tulle is not wired, as the.fur gives jlii
it the necessary bouifant effect. The bodice is cut low in front and UK
filled in with tulle, but the back is high. glty
The fetching tango cap Is made of the blue tulle. The girdle nag,

Later I .will show you some stunning models for the matron of fashion Jjlf,
I am interested just now in the black and white revival, for' the wbeel J!.
of fashion has come full circle and brought the all-black and the black Jl

But it is wonderful how quickly we can get used to changed conditions fifc
