ALISA MELEKHINA didn't write her first children's book until she was 6, took two full years to graduate Drexel University, and only now, at age 20, is at Penn Law. What a slacker! The Rhawnhurst-raised Melekhina is off to St. Louis on May 8 to compete in the U.S. Women's Chess Championship. Melekhina, who has also been studying ballet since she was 6, says her father, Aleksandr, who taught her chess but soon after stopped playing against her because she kept beating him. The Ukraine-born Melekhina came with her family to the U.S. when she was 2 months old. They lived in Brooklyn until she was 5 and then moved to the Northeast.

Like so many contemporary designers, Jamie Phyll Lewin launched her fashion line with T-shirts. Unlike C&C California and Three Dots, which offer just the basics, Lewin focused on details. Her shirts featured fashionable touches such as cutouts, ruching and darts. Now the Cheltenham native, 28, has a complete fashion line: Phyl Couture, a 30-piece collection of easy-to-wear, tailored pieces. After three years - that's six fashion seasons - the collection made its New York debut Monday in a showroom blocks away from the billowing Fashion Week tents in Bryant Park.

Former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno said Friday that she was considering running for governor of Florida next year, a move that might pit her against Gov. Jeb Bush, the President's brother. Reno, 62, said in a phone interview from her Miami-area home that she would probably decide by the end of the year. "I want to talk about the vision I have of what the state should be," she said. "Maybe there are other people out there who could address that better than I can, but let's see. " Reno was elected Miami-Dade County's state attorney five times before serving as attorney general under President Bill Clinton.

Toggery is a collection of cotton T's and tanks perfect for layering under this spring's trendy shrunken blazers. The comfy 23-piece line features wraparound cardigans in neutral shades and racerback maxi dresses in punchy pastels, too. But the locally made label founded by Kate D'Arcy, 32, is more than a grouping of easy-to-wear women's basics. It is proof that designers can have successful fashion careers designing and manufacturing clothing in Philadelphia - after a very long hiatus when a lack of skilled local workers made it nearly impossible.
