rade In Realistic Air.
Such an array of pretty clothes, pretty
girls and pretty dances!
The opening of the Promenade des
Toilettes of the 1915 season season, held
yesterday afternoon in Meier & Frank's
auditorium, was one of the biggest
novelties of the year.
The room was thronged with debu
tantes, schoolgirls, brides-elect and
anxious mothers. Even the little tots
played an important part in the as
semblage. They were there to -see
their little friends "all dressed up" in
the most wonderfully correct togs for
little boys and girls.
The bride-elect whose wedding will
take place this Fall, with her attend
ants, arrived early and secured a front
row seat- she wanted to be sure to
learn the correct method of arranging
her veil, the proper style and material
for her bridal gown and how to ar
range the bridal procession.
Everything was so beautifully car
ried out and in such perfect detail that
the Fall weddings surely will be ar
tistic Ralnbovr Wedding Featured.
The rainbow wedding was featured.
and the white cane and silver basket
containing very few blossoms was car
ried in lieu of the inevitable bouquet.
Of course the bride, in her gorgeous
gown of silver brocade, white satin
and tulle, carried a shower bouquet.
and her veil was arranged coronet
fashion and wreathed with orange blos
Everything was so real that It was
difiicult to believe that the promenade
was Indoors. First entered Marjorie
Elizabeth, on the eve of her formal
bow to the social world, attired in a
lacy, frilly negligee and boudoir cap.
attended by an ebony-hued maid. She
reclined on a chaise lounge, sipped a
cup of tea and dreamed. Looking back
she saw her first birthday party little
girls and boys in the smartest frocks,
coats and hats, tripping in on the plat
form. The littlest rebel of the assem
blage Immediately spied a woolly lamb
and dog, and made a rush for it with
shouts of glee. All the other tots fell
on the toys and a happy time followed.
School days showed girls in their
teens attired smartly in lovely frocks,
hats and coats, and the shoes and gloves
play an important part.
Sport Clothing; Kea tared.
In the field of sport apparel was
shown for swimming, canoeing, skating,
golnng, tennis court, polo and riding.
Again the reality of the procession was
relt by the stamping of two well
groomed horses, with the debutante
and her groom in correct attire.
The tea dance showed the latest and
most approved styles for the afternoon
functions. During this part of the pro
gramme Miss Frances Ross and Robert
Archer Bowlby, the former in a fasci
nating blue velvet gown, high laced
boots and chic little toque, danced the
latest one-step. Their dancing was so
finished and artistic that they were
Especially lovely and pleasing to the
young folk was the folly dance, which
Miss Ross danced charmingly, her gown
having a number of red balloons tied
all around the hem, and a huge bunch
of the gaily nodding balloons in either
hand and on her little cap.
Mr. Bowlby and Miss Ross danced
several dances divinely, among them
the cake-walk trot. Serenade D' Amour
and the fox-trot.
All the gowns worn by Miss Ross
were from the costume department, and
