By Paula Rath
Advertiser Staff Writer

Anita Lois Slayter has learned a thing or two about fashion, fit and what flatters the figure since opening the Fashion Consignment Center shop nearly three years ago.

Now she wants to share what she's learned with women who need a little help to see themselves objectively. So she is offering free classes in "camouflage chic" at her Aiea store.

It's a practical approach to selecting clothing that complements body type and profession. Attendees critique each other in the clothes they arrive in and discuss elements of camouflage chic such as:

Strategic use of color.

Stripes and how they make the eye move.

How to spot quality in a garment.

Details that can flatter or detract, such as lapels and hem lengths.

They then shop around the store to find pieces that work well for them. and another critique rounds out the class.

The next camouflage chic class is set for 4 p.m. Jan. 27 at the Fashion Consignment Center, behind Cutter Ford in Aiea. Space is limited to six women per class, so early reservations are recommended. Call 488-8110.

Slayter is also offering a wardrobing class for women who are going on a cruise. Formal nights and casual days are discussed. The next class is at 4 p.m. tomorrow at the store. Call the number above to reserve a space.
