Life literally bursts from the Earth and the sky in April to take to the sweet task of making the next generation. Flowers advertise their reproductive organs using fanciful colors and enticing smells. Birds sing, and frogs croak, all in the hopes of finding lovers during the all-too-short, now-or-never mating season. Humans, too, hear flirtation's call. We shed our winter coats and start to show skin. On sunny days, Philadelphians put on a human peacock parade, although instead of feathers, we have Prada dresses, coifed hair and Gucci bags.

Glenda Jackson brought a flash of show biz yesterday to Brit's House of Commons, where she staged a fashion show to protest Third World trade restrictions in the West. Models wearing cottons and silks from India, Bangladesh and other Third World places paraded among the lawmakers. The actress, now also a Laborite legislator, was trying to make the point that unless trade barriers are eased whole countries will be reduced to "a begging bowl. " Decked out in a classic British khaki suit with a three-quarter-length jacket, Jackson blamed big job losses in Britain's textile and clothing biz on technology and competition from the United States and other European countries that target the high end of the fashion market.

Wedding gowns inspired by boned corsets (ouch), children's wear with images from European storybooks (cute), and sportswear with medieval armor detailing (interesting) were among the 10 collections Drexel students showed earlier this month at their annual fashion show at the Urban Outfitters Navy Yard complex. Some favorites included Julia Edick's handknit children's sweaters, which married Old World charm with a retro sensibility. The handmade buttons were a nice detail that helped her win Drexel's Most Creative Graduate Collection Award.

The Montgomery County Medical Society Auxiliary held its annual luncheon and fashion show, Welcome Sweet Springtime, last Thursday at the Plymouth Country Club. While the weather was not exactly springlike, the large turnout, roughly 150 guests, was sweet for the organizers. "I was amazed at all the people who came out, despite this awful weather we've been having," said fashion show organizer Margie Anderson. Proceeds will benefit the Student Nurses' Financial Aid Fund. "We made over $2,700 so far. There seems to be quite a need this year," Anderson said, noting that there has been an increase in scholarship applicants.

When a supermodel struts, shifting from hip to hip, down a runway, there is a simple, yet effective, dance going on. Purists may object to calling a fashion show a dance. But using dance as a way of looking at movement - especially ironic, distant, "cool" movement - is appropriate when considering "Hot Movement, Cool Contexts," performed Thursday night at the Mandell Theater by the Group Motion Company and Koresh Dance Company. Surely costume is more important than dance at a fashion show, but many elements of a runway show's mise en scene - techno-dance music, an aloof bearing, and the selective exposure of skin - are also dance or theater devices.

With federal funds reduced for social programs and with reported child abuse on the rise, agencies such as the Children's Aid Society of Montgomery County are taking up more of the slack. "This is really a worthwhile organization, particularly now," said Mary Lou Wolf of Ardmore, president of the auxiliary, which helped raise funds for the society with a fashion show and luncheon at the Merion Cricket Club on Sept. 23. The children's aid group, established in 1885, provides specialized, professional, family-oriented social services to abused, neglected and delinquent children and youths within and outside the context of families.

When Erinn Aloi of Havertown cleaned out her grandmother's attic this spring, she found numerous clothes from the 1950s. "I had to do something with them," said Aloi, who decided to put on a vintage fashion show Saturday and Sunday, with proceeds going to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). More than 100 people attended the two shows. "My brother, Kevin O'Donnell, was lost to a drunk-driving accident in 1984," she said. The fashions included those of her grandmother, Ramona Adams of Havertown, some from Adams' neighbor, Rose Greco, and a dress that Sandra Botson, Aloi's mother, made as a teenager in home economics at Haverford Junior High School.

Do you like some style with your TV series? This summer's TV is replete not only with good plots, but the fashion is almost as good - if not more so - than the dialogue. That's largely because today's costume designers are doing more than arming characters with the right looks. They are explaining their inspirations in behind-the-scenes recaps, creating Pinterest pages for their fans, and even designing collections based on their characters. "Costume designers have an even greater impact and influence than they did just a few years ago," said Linda Kearns, president of the costume designer division at the New York entertainment consulting firm Matchbook Co . Kearns works with many of the industry's top costume designers.
