Fashions Fashion: something simple after five

"The legend is that you can tell a fashion tycoon by counting her bracelets - four at least. Other apocrypha: sunglasses even in the rain, a purse big as a Gladstone bag. But the real markings are far more subtle. At a cocktail party,for instance, no globs of glitter, bumptious skirts or bumptious decolletages. What's more likely, simple stuff: a Chanelish suit, a silk sweater, a little something of a shift."

Anne Swedmark of the Ford Model Agency in Ulla. Anne, about to leave for Ford, Paris, tries out her French on Bob Wise who sells houses on New York's gilt-edged east side.
