They say this is not a fashion town. They should get out more often. Style is alive and well here, but it takes special events like last Sunday's Ebony Fashion Fair to make it perk. Quality is a given 36-year tradition for the all-out international designer lineup. It's the audience that proves fashion has a place in women's lives. We're talking women, not trendies. The guests and alumnae of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, sponsors of the show, understand polish. There were no sneakers, no grunge, no message T-shirts.

Chicago--When a fashion director who travels around the world to ferret out fashion trends goes out on a limb and says, "The single most important piece to add to a fall wardrobe is . . . " you sit up and listen for the end of the sentence. Especially if you don't have to wait until fall to find the gem she's talking about.Pleated skirts are the items that Joan Kaner believes are the absolute essentials for pepping up a wardrobe. "I'm bullish about pleated skirts," says Ms. Kaner, senior vice president and fashion director for Neiman Marcus stores around the country, "because they change the whole silhouette with their movement, their mobility."

Designers are giving a yawn to the bosom and legs, and instead have bellied up to the midriff as fashion's latest focal point.Among the myriad of designer offerings for summer, Ralph Lauren framed the navel between cropped vests and hip-riding sarongs, while Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel, shows some middle ground with bra-tops instead of blouses peeking out from under saucy little suits -- a look he carried over into his fall collection.

PARIS -- Showing pretty clothes is not enough. Many of the designers presenting their fall and winter collections here in tents in the courtyard of the Louvre are trying to suggest other things: the end of the world, for instance, or simply the end of fashion. This premature fin-de-siecle blues is expressed in somber colors -- black is in first, second, and third place, followed distantly by wine and brown -- and the unfinished look, usually called deconstruction and marked by torn edges.

Get a leg upFor the past few seasons, women of style have limited their leg wear to black and cream. It has been black opaque pantyhose for fall and winter, while the warm months have found women wearing sheers -- either black or very pale creamy shades (but never white!). For the sizzling heat of summer, many have opted for bare legs or sheer neutrals that give the effect of a tanned leg.Come fall, that's going to change.Black, of course, is not going to go away. But the variety of colored and patterned hosiery and stockings may even tempt the most loyal fans of black to reach for something different.

Active sportswear has sprinted out of the gym, galloped away from the stables and schussed off the slopes. It's turning up on the runways in New York and Europe.Designers who survive beyond their first collections often credit street styles and real people as their inspiration, often finding fashion ideas in places most people wouldn't even think to look.In recent seasons, Americans' fascination with fitness and comfort convinced U.S. designers to incorporate the basics of active sportswear clothes that look sleek but feel great into their ready-to-wear collections.
