Fashion, a general term for a currently popular style or practice, especially in clothing,
 foot wear or accessories. Fashion references to anything that is the current trend in look 
and dress up of a person. The more technical term, costume, has become so linked in the
 public eye with the term "fashion" that the more general term "costume" has in popular 
use mostly been relegated to special senses like fancy dress or masquerade wear,
 while the term "fashion" means clothing generally, and the study of it. For a broad 
cross-cultural look at clothing and its place in society, refer to the entries for clothing, 
costume and fabrics. The remainder of this article deals with clothing fashions in the 
Western world.
