Panic's over! We have our first article taking a look at this autumn's styles. Here's Lynda Stretton's take on the Touch of Class this fall.

For a long time, we've been wanting to get together an article on make-up. Thanks to a well-timed press release, we're able to present the first of what we hope will be many. It's called Working with Make-Up.

Fashion house Givenchyrecently surprised the industry by placing Englishman John Galliano at the helm. Here's that news and a beautiful example of his retro look... A New Man Steps In.

While we were panicking and trying to get the autumn collections material together, we decided to divert your attention with a picture page called Sand on the Runway. The pictures feature beachwear from last spring's collections. There's even something here for latex lovers.

More movies!!! Don't know what makes us do this as it takes up tons of Internet bandwidth. Anyway everybody seems to like these movie clips and we hadn't added new ones for ages. There's a four-part Todd Oldham series, and a new Galliano feature.

For those of you off to the beaches of the northern hemisphere, there's the The Swimwear Page. This is a quick look at what's hot, other than the the sun at the beach this summer. More summer articles can be found in Summer '95, and Some Summer Tips. If you want to check out the latest in Lycra, read Lycra Take Two. The Scene on The Streets of England has the kids wearing their shirttails out - intentionally. The look consists of a crisp white shirt, tails out front and back, worn under a crop top. It's hard to predict if the look will catch on outside of England, but keep an eye on the biggest cities first. And slit mini skirts in satin are being worn everywhere by a slightly older crowd. The slits are revealing enough to warrant careful choice of underwear. We all should've listened to Karl Lagerfeld when he said last fall that it's OK to show some underwear.

Back in February, The Fashion Page attended The Premier Collections Exhibition of autumn/winter fashions in Birmingham, England. There's material here of interest to both men and women.

It seems people never tire of reading the corsets article. So here's some more. Everything you ever wanted to know about what you'd probably prefer to have covered up. Underwear right up to the... er... er... nineties are covered in Underwear Through the Ages part 1 and part 2.

There's a lot of material and many small pictures in the Fashion TV review section.

Read the review of the movie Pr�t � Porter. (If you want more, there's also some coverage in the January 7th FTV Review.) And being launched after the Cannes Film Festival is a Me Too fashion movie called "Unzipped". This movie along with new books from photographer Ellen von Unwerth, and makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin are reviewed in the December 31 FTV Review. While we're on the subject of movies, we hear from England that British designers - influenced by the release of "Little Women" - are making additions to their Autumn/Winter 1995 collections. Expect to see calico nightwear influenced by the period. These designs feature long sleeves, frilly buttoned necklines, and of course are floor length.

Fellas stuck for ideas should check the Mix N Match article. There are some glamorous pictures in the December 17 FTV Review, but we still have some favourites in the December 10 FTV Review. Yes, we have movies! See our Movie Page for details.

Christmas has long gone. Everybody should stop reading this article but it refuses to die as everybody keeps on reading it! The men can check what they should've bought their loved ones by looking at the Christmas Shopping Tips for Men. (Ladies are encouraged to view this page to see how well the men did.) For the chaps who regularly wear a tie, try out The Pratt Knot and impress everybody. And are you going to read those Care Labels properly? If not, your chances of a manufacturer refund are not good. Sue Stansby looks at how manufacturers can tell you did bad things.
