SLIGHT HINT OF THE TURKISH
By Betty Brown
Here is one of Mme Alia Ripley's
models from the Fashion Art League
fashion show and notice the orien
tal drape at the bottom of the skirt
not a "harem" skirt at all, just a
gentle hint of Turkish influence.
It was noticeable in all the smart
evening gowns at the show.
The gown is of azure blue soiree
silk with bodice of flesh color net
A girdle of silver embroidered rib
bqn and narrow black ribbon form a
girdle silver and blue are repeated
in the rose garland on the skirt and

Paris buyers are bringing back
trunk upon trunk filled with one
piece gowns. This, of course, means
the vogue of the separate cloak.
Embroidered bands 10 and 12
inches deep adorn many of the coats
that have just arrived from Paris.
They are newer than fur some of the
buyers tell me we had the fur bands
last season, you know.
If it has the low waist line, slop
ing lower in the back than the front,
then you may know a gown is new
nd very smart The "baby" effect
of the empire waist line is banned,
buried, banished by modistes who
know wnat's what in fashion.
Java brown, Russian green, bottle
green, beige, which belongs to the
tan family, various shades of purple
and wine are the popular colors for
suits and street dresses. Burgundy
color pleases so majiy eyes that much
of the new hosiery is in that rich tint
