Fashion Week may be more colorful next year as the Mormon polygamist wives are getting into the clothing business, introducing a new line of pastel, cotton children's clothing they're hoping to sell on their web site.
This should be a relief to parents whose kids had been running around the house demanding, "Get me clothes like those!" after seeing the sherbet-frocked women on television.
The entrepreneurs are counting on an interest in modest clothes. My advice would be - before going into mass production -- they should visit New York's Meatpacking District to get an idea of what those who don't live on a Texas ranch are wearing.
Being offered are dresses, overalls, shirts, pants, nightgowns, sleepers, onesies for babies and, the ever-popular, ankle-to-wrist underwear so many of us have been clamoring for. If there's a demand, they would consider adding women's apparel.
If this catches on, look to other religions to follow. The knock-off shops on Canal Street are, no doubt, clearing shelves to make room.
