They are as well-versed in 3-D printing, weaving and the anthropology of fashion as they are in classic looks from Chanel and Dior. Students in the Maryland Institute College of Art s fibers program approach fashion from an unusual perspective. Although the college does not offer a traditional fashion design curriculum, graduates are creating inventive garments informed by education rooted in a sensual - and intellectual - understanding of textiles. "Fashion is a cultural force that relates to how we communicate ideas, values, fears and aspirations, our sense of belonging, and our ideas around gender and class," said fibers department chair Valeska Populoh.

After sandwiching a closer-than-expected 27-20 decision over Centennial Conference rival Susquehanna on Sept. 13 with fairly dominant wins against Randolph-Macon and Moravian, Johns Hopkins encountered its first important test of the season Saturday with a road trip to Muhlenberg, which had captured seven league titles in the last 13 years. The Blue Jays left with more than a passing grade as they scored the game's first 21 points en route to a 42-26 victory. They improved to 4-0 overall and 3-0 in the conference and gave coach Jim Margraff a measure of comfort about his team's potential.

Michael Phelps is playing some serious poker in the Bahamas with the likes of Jason Alexander. But cards, shmards. At least one reporter is more interested in nominating the swimmer/golfer/card shark/retiree for the next episode of "What Not to Wear. " Chris Chase of USA Today offered quite the post-game analysis of Phelps' wardrobe  in a Thursday blog post: "Let's analyze the look Phelps is sporting in the Caribbean," he writes. "It's a style that screams, 'I'm retired and the only time I'm setting foot in a pool is if there's a swim-up bar attached to it.'" It actually also seems to scream, "I'm comfortable and wearing a lot of stuff I probably got for free.

It's the little things that count this spring. The unusual buttons on an otherwise classic jacket. The high-heeled shoes with updated platform sole that transform last year's little suit with new height. The use of gingham, plaid or unexpected color to add an element of fun to basic shapes.In these cautious times, great seasonal changes don't make sense. It's a rare company that can afford to take a chance on clever new styles consumers might not be ready to try this spring. And, of course, there are even fewer customers who're willing, or able, to part with any of their limited funds for experimental fashions.

Julie Cheng made a glove from red yarn that mimics the intricate system of veins in the human arm. The blood-colored thread begins at the middle finger and is connected to the thumb by the web of tissue across the palm, and then runs down the biceps to the elbow. It looks as though her model's skin had been turned inside out, an effect that is both disquieting and oddly mesmerizing. Cheng, who will show four fashions in her "Accupressurist" collection Saturday night as part of the Maryland Institute College of Art's experimental fashion show, is fascinated by the human body's internal systems.

When she returns to Baltimore, Zoey Washington walks the streets with relative anonymity. She'll pop into local boutiques unnoticed. This isn't the reception you would expect for a woman who founded a nationally recognized styling collective, LittleBird, focused on the teen and tween demographic, and who has held editing positions with some of the world's best-known glossies. Washington, a 31-year-old graduate of Garrison Forest School and Columbia University, prefers it that way. But Washington's resume reads like a who's who of fashion elite: She's held positions at Marie Claire, Vogue and Essence.

When models strut down the outdoor catwalk at The Village of Cross Keys' annual One Great Fall fashion show on Sept. 20, the sartorial showcase will be about more than hemlines and high heels. Cross Keys, an upscale enclave of residences, boutiques and cafes in North Baltimore, will utilize the occasion to benefit the House of Ruth Maryland Inc., which provides services aimed at domestic violence victims. While the glamour and beauty of fashion may seem incompatible with the ugly and violent behavior of domestic abuse, organizers are billing the event as one that, ultimately, empowers women.

While Chris Davis' season has been a struggle at the plate, there's no question the Orioles first baseman still can change a game with one swing of his bat.   Davis is hitting just .189 this season, but regardless of his place in the club's lineup, he still gets respect at the plate - so much so that opponents recently have chosen to make his teammates beat them rather than keep the bat in Davis' hands.   The Minnesota Twins, however, had no choice but to pitch to Davis with the bases loaded in the fourth inning Friday night, and Davis made them pay by crushing a grand slam off Twins right-hander Trevor May, the pivotal blast in a 9-1 drubbing before an announced 27,464 at Camden Yards.

With a new mayor at the city's helm, everyone is supposed to be paying attention to her speeches, not her suits, and looking at her actions, not her accessories. But it's safe to say that Baltimore is interested in everything about Stephanie C. Rawlings-Blake, from her policy down to her platform pumps. It's just the way it is. The city was all a-twitter about Mayor Martin O'Malley's muscle shirts. People are still talking about William Donald Schaefer's aquarium swim in old-time bathing trunks.

It's the latest in a series of changes that will sometimes have it acting more like an outlet mall or "private sale" Web site. EBay is working with major fashion brands and retailers such as Hugo Boss and Lord & Taylor to act as sellers.
