NEW YORK -- If you're a woman in Baltimore who's been around for any length of time, chances are you own clothes by Ellen Tracy. The classic designer label has been a staple in Baltimore closets for decades -- worn to luncheons, bar mitzvahs and business interviews by sophisticated women who have a keen sense of style, not an obsession with fashion. But as other younger, hipper labels climbed their way up in the fashion world, Ellen Tracy took somewhat of a back seat. Retailers and customers alike quietly grumbled about its "department store" feel.

This fall designers have distilled some of the best fashion innovations of this century and streamlined them for its last decade. Daytime silhouettes are clean and spare, with the interest in patterns and textures rather than trimmings. Evening dressing acknowledges the need for fantasy and a touch of drama.These are ideas we have seen before, but softer fabrications, built-in stretch and high-tech finishes make them new.There are hints of the '30s, when every occasion meant dressing and fashion meant polish.

NEW YORK - Instead of strutting in stilettos, they bounced in saddle shoes. No, these were not the usual models seen on the runways of Fashion Week, except for the labels on the clothes they were wearing: Escada, Hilfiger, Sean John, Kenneth Cole, Nicole Miller. Those were some of the designers showing their fall lines here yesterday - for 4- to 11-year-olds. Call it high fashion for the knee-high set, the kind of cashmere blazers, leather jackets and faux furs that trendy moms and dads wear, miniaturized for their offspring.

Happy birthday, Weber grills! Half a century ago, a metalworker in Illinois was so frustrated by the uneven and uncontrollable flame of his open brazier grill that he cut a metal buoy in half, made a dome-shaped grill with a rounded lid and revolutionized backyard barbecuing. George Stephen sold copies of his new invention for $50, quite a jump from the average $7 cost of an open brazier. But a nation of grillers recognized genius when they saw it, and the Weber Brothers Metal Works soon metamorphosed into Weber-Stephen Products Co. Through its 50 years, Weber has offered a range of styles and variations.

I have been lucky enough to be chosen to spend three months working in Spain. I have plenty of lightweight suits to wear to the office, but for weekends, it's another story. At home in the heat, I wear baggy T-shirts and shorts for day and change into jeans for evening.My boss tells me the Spanish are quite formal in their dress. As I don't want to let him down, can you suggest what I should buy for weekend outings and casual evenings?Hot weather anywhere calls for easy dressing. So your first rule should be to keep the pieces you buy simple and comfortable.
