Brian Lefko remembers the day a salesman walked in to Sam Glass and Son clothing store on Gay Street looking to interest him in buying some Pierre Cardin. "Who is Pierre Cardin? We don't want that junk," Lefko remembers thinking. Back then the French designer wasn't in the vocabulary of a Baltimore men's shop buyer. Forty-some years later, Lefko notes that nearly all the other manufacturers he used to sell are gone. And now Lefko, who has seen a lot in 45 years in the clothing business, is planning to shut the doors of his store on Reisterstown Road in Pikesville.

By all appearances, it was a great year for Alix Gres, the French fashion designer. There was a retrospective of her work the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in September, attended by Yuzo Yagi, the chairman of Yagi Tsusho Ltd., the Japanese company that bought her name in 1988 and sponsored the exhibit.And she was being heralded by fellow couturiers like Yves Saint Laurent, who marveled at the exhibit in an interview in Women's Wear Daily. Her daughter, Anne Gres, provided the fashion industry newspaper with a response she said her mother had dictated on Oct. 9: "Coming from an artist and colleague whom I admire, I'm greatly touched."

Imagine your darling daughter all dressed up for Easter or Passover in a Chanel-like suit complete with a short-cropped jacket, flirty pleated skirt and quilted chain-link bag.Or picture your little boy as dapper as they come in an Armani-influenced, double-breasted suit and a silk tie just like dad's.This holiday season you don't have to imagine. Dress fashion for girls and boys this spring is strongly influenced by the adult world of high fashion.For little girls, this often means sophisticated suits, pants ensembles, and dresses and jackets instead of frou-frou and frilly dresses.

BUCHAREST, Romania -- German coffee and Mars bars fill shops that once held little but dust and dead flies. Pierre Cardin scarfs hang alongside window displays for Paloma Picasso perfume. But the Western glitz is failing to convince many Romanians that the Christmas Revolution of 1989 that overthrew Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu was anything but an illusion.Ceausescu is gone. His massive folly palace, the House of the People, may be empty, but his followers are creeping back into power, and they are intent on doing things their way with only a wink to democracy.

BEIJING -- The only thing really remarkable about Yang Zhongwei is how well prepared he was to shuck the security of state employment for the profits and uncertainties of private enterprise.Other than that, he's just another new Chinese millionaire, moving as fast as he can to ride along the top of the country's red-hot economy without getting burned.There are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of private entrepreneurs as successful as Mr. Yang in China these days. They're having a ball -- for now.For the last year, China's economy has been rocketing.

The social scene really heats up in Baltimore com September. New seasons for symphony and stage and lots of black-tie benefits and balls attract those who choose to schmooze stylishly.Paula Brauer, a salesperson at Gingiss Formal Wear in White Marsh Mall, says business certainly does increase around this time of year, with the majority of Baltimore men still opting for traditional black-tie garb -- basic black tuxedos or cutaways, worn with black ties and cummerbunds -- practical, chic, sure-fire dressing.
