All the go.
 
All the fashion. Drapers will tell you that certain goods “go off well.” They are in great demand, all the mode, quite in vogue.   1
       
“Her carte is hung in the West-end shops,
       
With her naiue in full on the white below;
       
And all day long there’s a big crowd stops
       
To look at the lady who’s “all the go.”
