The idea is to take an outfit name, such as “bell bottoms” and make a literal version, for example attaching bells onto your derriere. A selection of names for clothing items that could have literal meanings are placed in a hat and members draw one (keeping it secret), then at the fashion show (perhaps a week or two later) they show off the creations they have made.  Having fun descriptions to read out as the ladies are showing off their creations would be good

The Commentator can wear a sack dress with potatoes on it (common-tater ;) )
