FRENCH RAGS' 'TRAVEL IN A SUITCASE'
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Today's executive woman has a new challenge -- always in a rush, she needs to skirt the interminable waits at baggage claim areas as she hurries from city to city, terminal to terminal and still carry with her a wardrobe versatile enough for every occasion. French Rags, the colorful knitwear spotted on women such as Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barbara Boxer and Carol Mosley-Braun, has come up with an answer. Picture a flight attendant-size suitcase, one that can easily fit into an overhead compartment, that holds two full weeks, an outfit a day, of designer knits that never need a hanger, an iron or a dry cleaner -- unless last night's dinner was spilled. Brenda French, owner and designer of French Rags, has made this dream a reality. French has packed 17 complementary pieces, creating an entire wardrobe, in one airline regulation "pilot bag" with room to spare for lingerie, shoes, cosmetics and a favorite pair of jeans. French Rags knits are versatile enough for afternoon tea in London to an evening play in the Westend; a boardroom meeting in Paris to a night at the opera; a country ride along the Holland canals; a business presentation in Brussels; and a final R & R stay at Venice's Lido beach -- for a total of 30 days. By all accounts, knits are back, and French Rags defy all the old myths that knits are clingy and body-hugging. The timeless designs look good on all bodies, not just the perfect size eight. "French Rags' classic look forgives imperfect bodies," French said, "unlike other designers who design clothes that look good on runway models or magazine pages." French Rags makes it possible for women to easily travel without taking "everything but the kitchen sink."
