I met with my friend Kathy from Berkeley today. She mentioned that she wears clothing made of UV fabric, but that most of the designs in this fabric are not going to hit the couture catwalk anytime soon. She has been playing with the idea of designing her own UV fashions.
Hello! What covers the body more effectively AND fashionably than a Pantsuit! I ask you?
O.K., there's the bio-hazard suit, but that tends to scare people off.
I suggested Kathy try on a Pantsuit from my collection and see how it feels....
She went for this scarlet and tangerine number... delicious!
But Kathy, imagine yourself in a coool cobalt making the coffeehouse scene in Berkeley!
Or how about seeing what Haight street looks like through a rose-colored pantsuit?
Or you could lay in the grass, (UV be damned) of Golden Gate Park, and practically disappear!
And why not turn people on their heads in the Purple Haze Pantsuit?
The possibilities are endless. Oh, and let's not forget include the much-overlooked hood onto any or all of these show-stoppers.
Please keep us posted, Kathy, as to your UV clothing designs!
And while we are on the subject of Pantsuits ( as if we are ever NOT) please visit

Here are some fresh new Pantsuits creations comin' attcha!
This is pleated Pantsuit style Kate is going with, I'm going to call this one "Mighty Pleasin'"
unless Kate corrects me with the name.
This one is complements of Jackie Baer. It was found at the Martha's Vineyard Dumptique, and looks to be home-made. Thanks, Mom!
This is the kind of Pantsuit you'd wear on an Intergalactic Pantsuit Promenade, so I guess I'll call this one "Intergalactic Pantsuit Promenade".
Where will I wear it? I'll wear it EVERYWHERE!
This Pantsuit definitely says "Halloween is Near" so I think I'll call it just that!
Hmmm.... delightful plaid, you could play tic-tac-toe on this number. I think I'll wear this one to Ireland when Hillary goes on her trip there in a couple of weeks. She's sure to invite me along as her Art Ambassador and interpreter for the Wee Folk.
This is the Pantsuit I'd wear while having tea with elves under a mushroom, so I think I'll call it "Mushroom Tea Party".
