FROM DIOR TO BALENCIAGA, PARIS DESIGNS EMBRACE BOTH Ends OF FASHION SCALE

As there are one other issue: the dummies are shaped like women. What to perform about breastplates for the men in the show? A telephone call on the prop committee brings help: two male mannequins on loan coming from a Chappaqua clothing store.

THE IMPACT of fashion on French culture is not underestimated. In Paris, the place that the final round in the international ready-to-wear collections is under way, it is understood this is definitely a serious business indeed. Even designer fashion is, on one side from the scale, for all - the look of Yves Saint Laurent appeared for the last French francs to become minted. But with the opposite end, it caters for ab muscles few.

 These extremes may best be exemplified by Christian Dior and Balenciaga. Both unveiled their offerings for spring/summer 2004 in Paris yesterday. Dior, designed by John Galliano, has always been grounded in commercial reality. In the event the house's eponymous founder's famous Facelift was unveiled in 1947 it absolutely was embraced by women throughout the world. Today Dior is probably the world's most successful brands. The other day it was announced how the company's profits were up 27 per-cent inside the half a year ending on 30 June.

He's got every reason to celebrate which is a lot more than thrilled to broadcast his success story, first on the 1,000-plus journalists and buyers in attendance and then, through the media, around the globe.

 The garments themselves are unlikely to offer just like the proverbial hot cakes. Only very few will probably invest in sheer latex shorts worn over Fifties suspender belts, or possibly a snakeskin and fur biker jacket in neon pink. It doesn't matter. Often there is the shoes to depend on - sales of Dior footwear for women are booming. On this occasion we were holding according to men's brogues, with peep-toes and stiletto high heel sandals and was included with punctured leather bags to complement. "Hard core Dior" read body stockings and tights worn under nearly every outfit.

. To start with, it had been tiny - no more than 120 people were attending. Nicolas Ghesquiere, the designer on the helm from the label, appears entirely uninterested in adapting his vision to broaden its appeal. It is a formula which has led to Balenciaga being essentially the most desired label by those who want to consider themselves "fashion forward". The clothes are impossible to resist.

 First out were essentially the most brilliantly crafted, skin-tight skirt suits in soft colours. The delicate web of seams that moulded these phones the body was highlighted by tiny plastic ribbons that caught the sunshine.

 Next came delicate, flesh-coloured lingerie-inspired slip dresses that swung about the torso and were worn over floral bikini tops. These will hardly the simplest of garments to hold off. Suffice to convey that high-street copies could be thin on the ground. That is not the purpose. Instead, the thought that adopts the technical construction with the collection as well as the achievement of an perfectly balanced and intriguing whole is key. When the shells are dry, special glue attaches reinforcing strips for the inside, robust tin snips shape them so they won't cut to the dancers' legs and arms, and metallic spray paint covers them. Next, Susy reveals a tool no medieval armorer ever used: an electrically heated glue gun loaded with sticks of meltable glue. Fastest glue gun in the East, we tease as we watch her glue straps for the back with the armor and fringe towards the front. Fringe on armor? ''Relax, Mom. Remember ...'' Show biz.

As there are one other issue: the dummies are shaped like women. What to perform about breastplates for the men in the show? A telephone call on the prop committee brings help: two male mannequins on loan coming from a Chappaqua clothing store.

Countdown to opening night begins and frenzy takes hold. Susy starts applying all-nighters. A big chart increases around the basement wall, listing each player and every item of clothing he or she is to wear in each scene. Beside it really are a size chart with everyone described from head measurement to foot measurement, a color chart with fabric swatches and sketches for every scene and also a chart of cue lines for entrances with costume changes noted in most mysterious show biz shorthand. The garments hanging from your I-beam stretch all the way up over the basement now, hung in sequence from opening song to finale.
