Men's, Women's
Styles Featured
At Fashion Show
Student Models To Be
Used Exclusively, Don-
ning Styles Old And New
Beginning with a review of what
the fashion-rights wore many years
ago, the fashion show to be held to-
day in the main ballroom of the
League, will finish with what is most
popular in men's and women's clothes
today, according to Mary O'Brien,
general chairman.
Both men and women's styles will
be modelled. The women who will
model are Mary Stirling, '35, Vinselle
Bartlett, '33, Jeanne Delamarter, '35,
Mildred Bosma, '35.
The show will be continuous from
3:30 until 6 p. m. and refreshments
served buffet style will be offered
the guests. For this a charge of ten
cents will be made.
Ann Arbor merchants are contrib-
uting the merchandise that will be
modelled to display what the smart
world is wearing to every sort of
function from sports to fo'rmal. The
old-fashioned costumes, however,
have been contributed by several

In addition to the ashion show,
Bob Marshall and his orchestra will
play for tea-dancing.I
"The whole affair will be unique in
that it feaures both men and wom-
en's styles, a thing that has never
been tried here before, and also in
that students will model exclusively,"
according to Miss O'Brien.

Spring Brides'
With spring here, our thoughts
turn quite naturally to wedding bells
and wedding garments. The young
April bride and her bridesmaids will
find a number of styles and mate-
rials at their disposal. Brides, as al-
ways, may be gowned in satin; but,
in addition, cloquet, organdy, and
especially mousseline are very pop-
ular. Many of the latest wedding
gowns are of satin and lace-a heavy
lace with an angelskin finish.
High, plain necklines, relieved by
sleeves puffed over the shoulders but
fitting snugly at the wrists, are very
effectual. The last word in wedding
veils is the new mousseline veil which
stands out just as stiffly as tulle and
is more flattering. Gloves may be
worn or not; but if so, simple white
suede ones are being shown for this
Bridesmaids' dresses are nearly all
of mousseline de sole, frequently
trimmed with velvet sashes, and tur-
bans are worn to match. However,
thenvery latest in the fashionable
world are little flowered muffs and
hats which fairly breathe of spring.
Small Evening Hats And
Flimsy Bows Are Mode
"Would'st thou feel thyself all that
is charming in the modern mode, fair
lady?" Then put on top of your new

coiffure one of these evening hats
that are so small as to be micro-
scopic but in their materials rest
their attraction.

F..ormals To Be
Victorian And
Fluffy In Style
Spring formals are revolutionary in
fabric, startling in details and frank-
ly enchanting in design. Delightfully
gy stripes, rampant flowers, and
plain chiffons combine in wholly dif-
ferent gowns. Victorian coyness and
20th century sophistication are weld-
ed together in unbelievable perfec-
tion. Parisian designers have vied to
produce unusual formals and start-
ling wraps.
Schiaparelli uses coq feathers on
two different gowns. One is of a
heavy clinging crepe that has an ap-
preciable train. The feathers are on
each shoulder and drape over the
arms gracefully. The other dress is
of a more subtle type in a clinging
'fabric of black. White coq feathers
are used at the shoulders at the bot-
tom of an extreme decolletage.
The prizes and awards should real-
ly go to the figured formals. Enor-'
mous plaid of pale pink and green
is used in one dress. Old striped
combinations of white, yellow, orange,
green cut elaborately for a more ef-
fective use of the stripes'are a favor-
ite with designers this spring.

Hourglass Silhouette
By 1815 the hourgiass silhouette
was becoming the mode. The bodice
fitted closely and the waist was held
in tightly with a corset. The breadth
of shoulders was accentuated by wide
bertha collars and huge leg o' mutton
sleeves. In 1840 the fashions took
a more graceful turn; the sleeves
were not so full, skirts became longer
and more flowing, and the women
acquired more grace.
However, the mode could not stay
simple for very long, and in 1850 the
crinoline, or hoop-skirt, holding out
masses of fine ruffle came into be-

as ten yards in circumference. Bod
