Fashion designer Pauline Trigere is putting her stylish stamp on some traditionally unstylish--and, in some cases, downright ugly--accessories that are commonly used by older people. She is working with Gold Violin, a Web site and catalog company, to make items like eyeglass cases, pillboxes and hearing-aid pouches in printed fabrics and ostrich-embossed leather. "Practicality has always been very important in my life and my designs.

Fashion designers, depending on their mood and their era, move waistlines up or down or just ignore them. They've been doing this since the 18th Century, which is the starting point for "Waist Not," on exhibit at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art through Aug. 21.

It used to be just about impossible for a woman Size 16 or larger to buy a designer-label outfit off the rack. But The Forgotten Woman, a chain of 25 stores that sells large-size women's clothing, is helping to change that. Founder and owner Nancye Radmin was in Palm Desert recently to open a new salon for top-flight designer clothing by, among others, Bob Mackie, Oscar de la Renta, Pauline Trigere, Nolan Miller, Alfred Fiandaca and Geoffrey Beene.

Much of Shaver's wardrobe comes from Jennifer Joanou and Richard Tyler. Pat Welch, the show's costumer, says she hopes the mix of Joanou's soft lines and sheer fabrics with Tyler's more theatrical twist in suits will "inspire some of our TV anchors to sit up and take note."

Michaele Vollbracht--top New York fashion designer, illustrator, fine artist and "star struck" film fan--says he's based his whole career around the fantasy of the movies. As he puts it: "I see the world in cinematic frames." Now he's based a book of caricatures on those fantasies, with drawings as diverse as the people he has known (or dreamed of knowing).
