rather than the exception, each person
sets his own style, creating a mass con-
glomeration of the old and new.
Whoever you are, whatever you are, the
"mode" is a fleeting flash of reality that
assigns an "okay,.dash, question mark" to
everything from japanese walking thongs
to rhinestone halter tops.
While the older, more conventional
modes of dress still prevail in the white

by no means extinct.

And so this is fashion, that is, anything
is fashion, because anything goes. There is
no set fashion yardstick, no barometer to
measure what's "hip" looking as opposed
to what's tacky . . . these days, what feels
good is what dictates acceptability, al-
though the leading fashion magazines, for
both men and women, whistle to a fastid-
iously different tune.
With fashion designers imploring people
to shave off their eyebrows, reshape their
liplines, color their finger and toenails
every hue from black to puce, the fashion
industry plays fashion "footsies" with mil-
lions of egos around the world.
There is no absolute or final word on
what's tasteful, and yet each year the
professional clothiers set up frantic pro-
duction schedules in the month to month
rush to get out next season's new "line"-

A most perceptive group, these masters
of the cloth are. Dabbling in fantasy and
visual hocus pocus lonly standard tricks of
the tradej the fashion industry represents a
Disneyland coalition of image makers.
And why not? If the psychologists are
right, amongst man's strongest drives is his
need for stimulus variability. Change, par-
ticularly visual change, provides a wel-
come distraction from the humble monot-
ony of day-to-day routine.
And what else, besides fashion in its
continual state of flux, provides a more
suitable medium? It seems dressing to
accent and project the view people have
of themselves and others plays a predomi-
nant role in costume selection.
On the Valley campus one is sure to see
alittle and a lot of everything from bargain
basement specials to expensive "one-of-a-
Although the mode is largely casual,
many men and women choose to dress
with conspicuous formality, while others
take the more blase view that anything
comfortable is appropriate.

most importantly, drama.
