EEOC Sues Victoria's Secret
PHILADELPHIA - The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit against Victoria's Secret asserting that one of its lingerie shops didn't honor a promise to give a Baptist saleswoman most Sundays off so she could attend church services.
The lawsuit said managers at a suburban Philadelphia Victoria's Secret promised Lauren Ellerson when she was hired that she wouldn't be required to work more than one Sunday a month.
Instead, Ellerson said the store in Langhorne regularly scheduled her to work on the Sabbath and that managers ignored her request to be given the third Sunday of each month off so she could receive Holy Communion.

Patricia gets the Guiding Light
Patricia Field has added another costuming gig to
her "Sex and the City" duties. The magenta-haired stylist has
signed on to help the women of daytime drama "Guiding Light"
look just as beguiling as HBO's most fashion-forward foursome.
Effective today, the Emmy Award-winning costumer will be consulting
designer to the CBS soap, the longest-running daily program in broadcast
"We are thrilled to have Patricia Field join us at Guiding
Light," said the show's executive producer, Paul Rauch. "Her
unique and exceptional sense of style will help put our fictional town
of Springfield, USA on the map along with fashion capitals Paris, Milan
and New York City."
Field has owned an eponymous Greenwich Village boutique for more than
three decades and her House of Field label can be found in more than 100
stores. It wasn't until she signed on with HBO's sex-fueled smash hit in
its first season though that the funky fashion icon started dictating
fashion trends across the country.

You can ask Andy questions about Fabrics at
Hi Andy, I am interested in buying fabrics when I go to NYC. I want some
bolts of quality, unique fabrics and a good selection of quality
remnants. Can you suggest any places to shop in NYC? Christene
yes, there are lots of great places for fabrics in New York City. Start
your search in the Manhattan yellow pages, under Fabrics-wholesale. There
are some retail front stores that also sell wholesale. They are
clustered between 36 and 40 th streets, West of Broadway. Walk up
and down the street, and stop in every store. You will find some of the
most interesting fabrics available anywhere. Have a great time. Good
Andy, I am starting my own
business designing sleepwear, could you please tell me the companies you
think sell the best fabric for sleepwear? Satin, flannel etc?
Thank you Greg & Debbie
Dear Greg & Debbie: visit the upcoming IFFE (International Fashion
Fabric Expo) in New York City. For information, visit www.fabricshow.com
There are lots of great
fabrics out there. It is mostly a matter of taste and fashion. Make
sure the fabrics you purchase meet or exceed the US standards for flame
retardancy. Sleepwear is especially tricky. Make sure you have
enough insurance. Attend trade shows and ask a lot of questions. Good
