SOME fashion designers launch home decor collections with a few pillows and bedspreads. Sue Wong filled a sprawling mansion with dozens of her exotic, vintage-inspired designs and in the process, demonstrated how well her fashion design sensibilities translate into home furnishings. Had she more time, Wong would have designed every item of furniture or fabric inside her palatial Los Feliz estate.

TWO black-clad women crouch uncomfortably beneath a silver lighting reflector, angling the morning glow onto a glittery chiffon dress. "Give me a seductive smile," says the director to the model, who affects the perfect cocktail-hour allure here in a cactus garden. "Now chin up just a little bit. Hold it -- go!" Since sunrise, Sue Wong has directed an eight-person team assigned to capture the vintage glamour of her namesake line of beaded cocktail dresses and ball gowns.

My partner and I have a home in Maui. We go six to eight times a year. It's in a place called Kipahulu. There are famous sacred pools there. Charles Lindbergh is buried in Kipahulu, at Palapala Hoomau Church. Recently I went with my best friends, artists Koji Takei and Jayme Odgers. The most interesting thing was connecting with Taoist master Alfred Huang. He wrote the definitive new translation of the I Ching. He hung out with us. It was transformative.

Only a very small piece of the fashion pie is glamorous. Models, runway shows and stores are pretty, and you can be, too, once you buy that new outfit. The rest of it, the bulk of it, is much like dressing rooms--ugly, sparsely furnished and poorly lit. Still, many people are quite willing to drive to the unlandscaped areas of town to toil in an office permeated with the acrid smell of fabric dye.

The reviews are in on a new spot for women's apparel in the San Fernando Valley, and they are raves. Magnolia Place, in operation only five months, is a find. It's cozy, well-organized and well-stocked. Yes, it's used clothes, but everything is clean and in excellent condition. This is not a consignment store; owners and sisters-in-law Linda and Bunny Franzle buy outright, and they are very selective.

Art openings may be the best venues for playing the peacock. "You can indulge in fancy dress-up, and my motto is always anything goes," said performance artist Ann Magnuson, who wore a frothy Sue Wong confection last week to the opening of the exhibition of "Guts" at the Fahey/Klein Gallery. The show of 25 raw photographs by Tim Palen, co-president of marketing at Lionsgate, drew a vast crowd as eclectic as an aquarium.

Prof. Henry Higgins' cry of "Why can't a woman be more like a man?" echoed in Los Angeles last weekend as menswear styles for women, many of them English-inspired, cavorted in three fall fashion forecasts. Along with dandified pin-stripe and tweed suits--often combined with vests and fedoras--designers embraced motorcycle chic and '40s-style Hollywood glamour.

Los Angeles Times This season, the string of fashion-focused events clustered around L.A.'s market week ? which takes place Oct. 15 to 19 downtown ? stretches across nearly two weeks and sees the departure of at least two familiar names (GenArt and BOXeight, which is shooting for an early November timetable for its usual photo-shoot presentation) and the inevitable addition of some not-so-familiar ones. Among them: Concept Fashion Week (Oct. 14-17) In its sophomore outing, the little fashion week that could fields an opening night party and three nights of runway shows and presentations at the Spring Arts Tower, 453 S. Spring St. in downtown Los Angeles.
