A pretty skirtsuit in ivory silk tulle with multidirectional pleating and puffed sleeves made an impressive start. She followed that with a nude organza blouse with a white beaded bib, and a pantsuit in a diagonal black-and-silver check, the pattern of which had been sewn rather than printed. For thoseand for picking up on the current trend for geometric construction (say, sheer box sleeves)she wins respect in the demanding milieu of haute couture craftsmanship. If it wasn't perfectthe continuity didn't quite hold up when she got to eveningthis young woman has taken a bold stride toward proving she can wield a pair of scissors with some finesse.
