At the Liberty Fashion Show Wednesday Evening
The Eastern Surprises With Wonderful Display
: Despite Trying Conditions.
While the great organ in the Liberty Theater throbbed with the
softest of dreamy waltzes; hundreds of women, and men, too, waited
expectantly for the curtain to rise on the first authentic Fall Fashion
Show, for 1918. The darkened house threw into relief the brilliantly
lighted stage, and twelve beautiful girls appeared, singly or in.
groups, perfectly gowned and quite conscious of the fact. There
were wee maids just Suited to the "chicken styles," and young women
with queenly grace, as well as those with the dash needed for the
large hats and checker collars. The one who selected the costumes
for each model certainly knew the art of accentuating beauty for
each onSjWas perfect of her type from her daintily dressed feet to
the tip of her fetching hat. Some things were more lovely than
others and you. really must know about them
One handsome dress was de
signed in black charmeuse, com
bined with black tricolette, em
broidered with gray yarn. The
tricolette fell below the waist
line in basque effect, from under
which emerged a skirt oddly
draped to one side. Sleeves of
black charmeuse and a sash, fin
ished with heavy tassels and
tying in the front, completed the
costume. It was priced $70.
Worn with this dress, for a dash
of color, was a hat faced with
American beauty.
Strikingly new was a suit of
biscuit shade duvet de laine.
The coat was designed with the
. new pane) front, offset by a deep
shawl collar of beaver. Odd cut
side drapes falling to the bottom
of the coat were deeply edged
with the fur. This was priced at
Another suit of - light tan
broadcloth had a large collar of
Hudson Seal fastened with fur
buttons. Two tabs falling from
the waist were edged with the
' seal about 10 inches in depth.
A cloth belt with pin tucks added
a pretty tailored touch. $38.50
was the price.
Black Charmeuse embroidered
In gold thread made up another
wonderful gown. -American'
beauty ribbon piped the sash
whicjt circled the waist and fell
to the hem of the skirt in the
back. A new idea in tunics was
introduced in the skirt. $65.00
was the price of this gown.
Decidedly new was a dress of
black tricolette, enlivened with
.a vest of white tricolette. Very
plain in cut, a wide bias band
edged with deep ' black fringe
gave the effect of a tunic skirt.
This was priced at $65.00.
What many accorded the most
striking costume shown was a
suit of amethyst panne velvet
with a high hat in the same color.
A wonderful high, roll collar of
beaver fastened with two velvet
tabs and buttons was becoming.
Deep beaver also edged the cuffs.
This was priced at $158.00.

A coat of black velour, with
large collar and cuffs of Austral
ian Opossum made a pretty color
contrast. $110 was the price.
A cape coat of genuine Scotch
mole led all others In a matter
of price although but falling
to the waist it cost $1000.
A striking full length coat of
grey velvet had a large collar of
Australian Opossum. It was cut
with a wide sweep, falling grace
fully from a small shoulder yoke.
Six rows of pin tucks across the
center back added just the proper
touch for trimming. This was
priced at $110.00.
A very wonderful piece of
Skunk fur was designed in stole
style. Each end of the fur was
brought back into a pocket fully
a foot deep. This was priced at
Duvet de lalne made up another
striking coat. A novel belt was
laced through stitched straps at
either side. Nutria fur was the
collar. $82.80 marked this wrap.
Probably the finest cloth ooat
shown was one in tan duvet de
lalne, featuring the new flat
panel back. A belt starting from
each side of the panel fastened
in the front. Hudson Seal in
great double fastened collar and
muff-like cuffs added just the
proper contrast. This was priced
at $175.00.
Probably having in mind our
first fall rain, some fascinating
umbrella novelties were shown.
