Donna Karan in

American women
0.01040006~bii.010004,0,- want. Season after
season, she de-
signs the kind of
low-key, uncon-
trived feminine
clothes women
really wear. She
deliberately keeps
her palette in the
netural colors, Ipso
from ivory and
beige to gray and
black. Case in
point: her three-
piece gray evening
ensemble of
sequined draped
skirt, cashmere

Bournias, of Cocktails, notices that
red is a dominant color in the store
for fall. "Of course black is popular,
but we have some vibrant reds and

iridescent in taffeta and ruby gown
with a jacket.At Roz & Sherm many
of the dresses have a combination of
two or three textures.
"There is a major amount of velvet,

exclusive label this season for dress
clothes. Customers will be able to
custom make two and three piece
outfits with jackets, skirts and bustiers.
"It's perfect for all ages and all
