Designers PredictRadical Ch anges inFall Fashion Picture

NEW YORK, July 12-(P)-The
greatest fashion furore since the
dawn of the hobble skirt is about
to break over a bewitched and
bewildered America, as New York
designers prepare to unveil to the
nation's press tomorrow a series
4 of new fall silhouettes calculated
to knock the family budget for a
'he general idea of the new
fall clothes, frankly discussed by
manufacturers, is to make it ne-
cessary for every woman in the
,ountry to toss out her current
wardrobe and start again from
scratch. That, they explain, is the

reason for fashion, anyway. If
styles had not changed since our
ancestors went around in bear
skins, where would the garment
business be?
Radical Change Needed
As one designer explained: "Why

it would have been terrible not
to have a radical change of sil-
houette this season. America
would have been the laughing
stock of Paris-and whether theyl
admit it or not, women would l
have been disappointed not to,
have some excitement on the
fashion front after all this time.
The department store buyers who
are so timid about changing
styles ought to get wise to them-
selves. Don't they know that if
styles never changed they might
as well all go out of business?"
Crux of the fall fashion battlej
lies in hiplines and hemlines. TheI
former bulge, the latter drop.
Once again it's going to be fash-
ionable for a lady to have hips
as well as a well-defined bust,
just so the waistline between these
two regions is as small as corset-
ing can make it.
Longer Skirts
The girls with knobby knees
get a break this year, too, be-
cause they don't have to show 'em
any more. Skirts are growing
longer by the hour, and com--
plaining males may as well get
used to it. Already, with mid-
season styles hinting of things to
come, the knee-length tight skirt
of last year looks all wrong.
As always, the most radical sil-
houette changes are in the high-
style and high-priced collections.
These are the clothes that cause
women to gasp when they first
see them, but after they have been
copied in toned-down $14.95 ver-
sions, the same women rush to
buy them.

Like the era of the 1890's, new
fashions for women indicate a
trend toward the broad shoulder,
snuggly nipped in waist, andl
larger hip emphasis.,

fall, to be unveiled in a crowded
week of fashion openings start-
ing tomorrow. Husbands and
fathers take note: You may as
well take the rubber band off the

Elizabeth, Philip
Invited to U.S.
For Honeymoon
LONDON, July 12-(P)-Ameri-
can-born Lady Astor invited Prin-
cess Elizabeth and Lieut. Philip
Mountbatten today to spend their
honeymoon at her Virginia home,
but a Buckingham palace spokes-
man said it was unlikely they
would accept.
"I don't think they will even
go abroad," he added.
The dollar shortage loomed as
one strike against any trip to the
Blue Ridge Mountain country.
Fears were voiced that such ex-
penditures might be in question-
able taste at a time when Britain
needs every dollar for vital Amer-
ican imports.
