One of the most interesting accessories at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week has been children. From celebrity stylist June Ambrose taking her daughter to the hottest shows throughout the city to random women hoisting infants on their hips like a Birken bag, children have been in full force. "Women have been celebrating motherhood," said Alice Ntam, a D.C.- based image consultant. "When was the last time you saw stylists have children? Now it's like a celebration of that. " My favorite was a woman leading around her 4-year-old.

LAST WEEK, Nike Inc. warned that its earnings would fall below forecasts this year and next, sending the stock of the Oregon-based athletic shoemaker reeling. The company, which derives 61 percent of its revenue from athletic shoes, blamed the shrinkage of retail space devoted to athletic shoes. Indeed, in the past several weeks alone, two of the nation's largest athletic shoe chains, Venator Group Inc., owner of the Foot Locker and Lady Foot Locker chains, and Just For Feet Inc., have closed what could amount to hundreds of stores.

I had the perfect plan for my bus ride up to New York City last night. I was going to complete my Christian Siriano profile, maybe watch a couple episodes of the ultra fashionable "Revenge," and get a couple minutes of some much-needed shut-eye. It's never that easy, right? Instead, the power chord to the computer mysteriously died, and so did my access to my story. Luckily I was surrounded by familiar faces to help me pass the time. Karen Garalde, a Baltimore-based designer known for her ability to work with eco-friendly materials, was seated in front of me. And there was Tiarra Plato, a hairstylist who recently moved from Baltimore to New York City where she now works at Jeffrey Stein Salon.

Even Preakness fashion wasn't immune to the recession. In the Corporate Village - itself downsized - many fashionistas used a bit more ingenuity instead of income to create their race day outfits, beginning with the event's iconic fashion symbol: the hat. "When you look at the prices of hats, they're going for $400. And I'm not that good a bettor," said Bethany Chirico, 36. So the Falls Church, Va., meeting planner found an inexpensive white brimmed hat and wrapped a white feather boa around it. Managing the Turf Club tent wasn't Denise Dotterweich's only Preakness duty.

Pat Benatar's bandana. Madonna's lacy gloves. Michael Jackson's red leather jacket. And Kurt Cobain's Unplugged sweater. There were Puck's tattoos. Cindy's mole. Britney's belly button. Boy George's makeup. George Michael's stubble. And Snoop Dogg's locks. For millions of us who raced off the school bus, even bypassed the refrigerator in the rush to switch on MTV and see Duran Duran serving champagne on a sailboat, there's a video memory for practically every stage of junior and senior high.

Merry-Go-Round Enterprises Inc. announced the opening of an office in New York's Garment District yesterday in an effort to bring its clothing lines more in tune with emerging fashion trends.While the move may prove to be a positive one, analysts said it was only a small step in addressing fundamental problems that led the company to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in January.The new office also should serve to heighten the profile of Leonard "Boogie" Weinglass, chairman and chief executive, who will be spending 50 percent of his time there, meeting with scores of fashion designers and clothing manufacturers each week.

Fall is a get-cozy season full of nostalgia and homey memories. We anticipate the newness of what Seventh Avenue will preview, yet we find security in a certain amount of predictability. Uncluttered is a word that captures the mood of many designers' new lines. Classically man-tailored looks are expected on the menu of this season's offerings. Think Faye Dunaway (you young ones can look that up) and you understand the classic elegance we have come to love in fall. These latest trends provide a winning combination of new twists with enough warm and fuzzies to satisfy designers and consumers alike.

Every once in a while a fashion trend comes along that's wrong for everyone. At least that's what we've been told about big, bold horizontal stripes. "They're back, they're definitely back," says Tim Gunn, chairman of the fashion design department at Parsons the New School for Design in New York, who points out that fashion trends tend to come and go in 20-year cycles. "A horizontal stripe can be deadly," he adds darkly. Just about every kind of stripe is part of this spring's fashion story: pinstripes, sweet vertical stripes in pastel colors, seersucker, and crisp, clean preppy stripes.

The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming! Well, not the Russians exactly, but their clothes will be in stores through the fall and winter. Look for the trend to continue into summer. Elements of Russian style - also called Russe - are everywhere this fall. Earlier, designer runways were filled with fur hats, trim military jackets, embroideries, voluminous skirts in flowery prints, boots, gold bangles and pendants. Diane Von Furstenberg even named her fall 2005 collection "Winter Palace," after the former imperial residence in St. Petersburg.

There is peer fashion pressure exerted on teen-agers, but the solid stamp of fashion credibility comes from magazines aimed at the youth market. The editorial staffs are young, hip and a generation removed from parents. After all, these are the voices that field questions about sex, skin eruptions and celebrity heart throbs. The magazines tap young correspondents on regional trends. Here, some of the editors gauge this fall's school dress direction.* Andrea Linett, associate fashion and beauty editor at Sassy magazine, zeros in on pieces to make fall's look complete.

This spring, it's all about the bling. For your summer wearing pleasure, stores are filled with sparkly things, ranging from bejeweled sunglasses to sequined sandals. Jeans decorated with Swarovski crystals, tiered skirts with mirrored discs and rhinestone-studded Ts are no longer considered eveningwear only. "It's one of the strongest, best-selling trends of the moment," says David Wolfe of the Doneger Group, which forecasts fashion trends. On the way to his New York office, he says, he saw a woman wearing jeans, flip flops, a T-shirt and a "solidly sequined" bolero jacket.
