Boycott of Jessica McClintock Ends: A pledge by the San Francisco-based clothing company to help promote fair labor practices prompted the garment workers group Asian Immigrant Women Advocates to call off its 3-year-old consumer boycott. "The agreement signifies an important milestone in efforts to establish cooperative relationships among all levels of industry," Labor Secretary Robert B. Reich said. The boycott began after subcontractor Lucky Sewing Co.

San Francisco designer Jessica McClintock will join the ranks of designer boutiques opening at the new extension of South Coast Plaza in time to cash in on holiday sales. The Costa Mesa boutique, which will carry only McClintock-designed lines of children's, young girls' and women's clothing, opens Friday. The designer's only other boutique is located in San Francisco, although a third store is under construction in New York.

A blitz of spring '88 fashion shows this week made it clear that virtually all roads lead to the gym. While some California designers leave a bit of room in easy-fitting trousers, circle skirts and trapeze-shape dresses, they also show snug, elasticized waistbands, bra tops, capri pants, flirty little skirts and an '80s suit: either walking or biker-style shorts with a boxy, bolero or fit-and-flared jacket. The emphasis is on playfulness, siren appeal and executive dressing with a twist.

The efforts of Young Shin and the Asian Immigrant Women Advocates ("Labor and Lace," by Sarah Henry, Aug. 1) seem to parallel more the efforts of unionization than they do the fight for workers' rights. There is a difference. In fact, the unpaid wages at Lucky Sewing Co. were never reported to the Department of Labor by Shin and her group, because, unfortunately, a positive response from authorities would have been counterproductive to unionization. In looking at AIWA's effort to crucify Jessica McClintock, I see a desperate labor organization using every union tactic of the past, even though AIWA says unionization is not its intent.

Pat Perkowski riffles through a rack of party clothes and pulls out the kind of dress a mother would love: puffy sleeves, prim neckline and billowy skirt adorned with a big blue bow. "This won't go on an eighth-grade girl unless her parents chain her to it," says Perkowski, who makes it her business to understand the tastes of fickle preteen girls.

Every night at 9, Windsor Fashions Chief Executive Maurice Zekaria begins a round of calls to managers of his 25 dress shops, as he has for 41 years. It is no longer necessary. A 4-year-old computer system tracks daily sales and inventory at each store. But the nightly pep talks from 71-year-old Zekaria demonstrate a commitment that has helped the family-owned company survive recessions and fashion trends that destroyed larger competitors.
