immediate approval, in fact, the
changing fashions did not catch
on for many centuries after that
original idea. When the change
came, not only were the styles
changed, but the materials as
well.
Romans wore sandals, before
them the Egyptians wore san-
dals, and before the Egyptians
shoes were a piece of skin wrap-
ped about the foot, probably tied
with a strip of the same skin.
Shoes today are unique, each
part of the shoe, toe, heel, top
and material is a separate fash-
ion. There are high and low heels,
round, pointed (which are out)
and square or blocked toes. On
the top of the shoe one can find
chains, buckles, beads and metal
bands. Interesting aspect of
shoes is that they have become
a fashion tothemselves. Almost
everything you can imagine can
be found in shoes. Not only are
there shoes but there are boots,
knee high, ankle boots, boots
which reach up to the mid-
thigh. With zipeprs,ziepephesthetr
thigh. With zippers, pull ons and
buttons the boots come in all
colors and materials; from leather
to vinyl and almost everything
in between. Of course there are
the old standbys, loafers and ten-
nis shoes for casual wear.
Actually, all the styles h a v e
been around for a number of
centuries. Sandals and moccasins
have been with us since the
early Egyptians and Romans;
boots are an offshoot of hunting
.and riding boots, still nothing
new or original here. The French
kings had the patent on buckles
long before we did and square
toes came over with the men of
Chris Columbus. Most of t h e
shoe fashion and some of t h e
clothes fashions have b e e n
brought from the past. Neat
thing about fashions from the
past is that they were good then
and they are even better now. I
wonder if the woman who dis-
covered that all the shoes looked
the same knew what she w a s
starting?!

Fashion Letter

TO: the dedicated follower of
fashion
I have been reading your page
for about a month, what I have
to say is not a criticism, but more
of an opinion. Most of the ar-
ticles on the fashion page are
interesting if not helpful. I won't
say that I always dress according
to the latest styles from aPris or
London but I do alright. Like I
mentioned before the selections
offered on your page are some-
what enjoyable to read, but I
often wonder how you get your
information on the clothes

It seems that all you write is
straight fashion articles, while
Debbi (or Debby however you
spell it) writes the editorials; she
does a good job, but I would like
to see you jump in with an opin-
ion on fashions. Your writing is
good and I should know, I'm an
English major graduating this
semester. Both of the other
writers come across well, Debbi
and Barbel. My only criticism is
that I would like to see more
opinions directed towards the
Ann Arbor campus fashions.
