TRUE STORY: A city principal used to display an industrial-size spool of twine on the front counter of the school office. Throughout the day, little boys emulating hip-hop video stars would slouch past her door, wearing droopy pants that revealed the advertising logos on the waistbands of their undershorts. She noted how the fashion hobbled them, as they could not trust their slight frames to keep the pants in place. "I'm gonna string you up," the administrator would growl, steering each baggy boy to a corner for a lecture on propriety.

When Amanda Hagerman first heard about a wearable art competition, she knew she wanted her Drawing for Fashion students at Southern High School to get involved.

NEW YORK - Martha Stewart finally has her new fashion accessory, and it fits snugly on her ankle. Stewart yesterday began wearing a lightweight electronic monitoring bracelet that will link her to the U.S. Probation Department for the next five months while she's under home confinement.

The Armani suits hang pristinely in the front window of Ruth Shaw. Sarah, the willful dachshund, stands guard by the Donna Karan hose. And fashion patter echoes through the room: That bias skirt makes you look smaller. ... I don't think it's dowdy, but you need a strappy sandal. ...

Like many watching television the other night, my first reaction to the University of Maryland's new football uniforms was "OMG. " What the heck are they wearing and who spilled the paint? But as the younger people around me started talking about how cool they are, I started to think about it more. If it's all about recruiting, why not? We of the older generation need to grow up. After all, would you rather make a fashion statement like the Cleveland Browns? M. Kurland

She often performs with burlesque and variety shows. And she plays a mean kazoo. "Someone once called me a mix of Julie Andrews and Divine, which I love," said the 35-year-old, whose real last name is Chapadjiev. "I've also gotten 'Tom Waits with a hint of Phyllis Diller. And though she lives in Brooklyn, N.Y., Chap has often performed in Baltimore for the past few years.

If there were a dress code for visitors to the current exhibit in Howard Community College's Rouse Company Foundation Gallery, it would stipulate that people must wear blue jeans when going to see Julie van Hemert's "Peopled Jeans. " That's because the artist uses blue jean material for her wall-hanging fabric art. Van Hemert does not significantly alter or transform this material. Instead, she typically clusters a few pants legs together in order to suggest that several close friends are, er, hanging out together.
