Fashion is a way of self-expression and individuality at a certain time and location and in a given context, of clothes, footwear, life style, makeup, hair style, accessories and body posture. The word also means a style defined by the fashion industry when what is trendy is what is in. For example, shoes for kids are different from those for adults. What may be trendy for one kid may be out of vogue for another.
