Fashion, behavior of a given historical epoch. It is a synonym of custom. The word comes from the Latin term modus, through the French mode. In the strict sense, however, "fashion" usually refers specifically to the various styles of clothing that prevail in a given society in a given historical epoch.

To create style, costumers use five basic elements: color, silhouette, trim, texture and harmony.

Fashion is approached as a sociocultural phenomenon that expresses the values ​​of society - usages, habits and customs - at a given moment. Styling and design are integral elements of the fashion concept, each with its well defined roles.

Fashion is a system that accompanies clothing and time, which integrates the simple use of everyday clothes into a larger political, social and sociological context. You can see the fashion in what you choose in the morning to wear, in the look of a punk, a skeet and a pop star, on the catwalks. With every passing day, the world of fashion has been surpassing and surprising people with vivid colors, new trends, unusual and innovative cuts. Fashion gives those who follow it an inspiration that is always innovative and daring.

It should be pointed out that, leaving aside the ethnocentric (actually "Eurocentric") tendency, which still prevails today, we must be clear that fashion, as a phenomenon, only became "universal" in the mid-nineteenth century, with the advent of crinoline. Until then, each people had its own way of dressing and ornamenting, in a way that lived together in different manifestations and styles at the same time.

Even today, in the period of globalization, one can not forget that the Muslim world is a separate universe, where the burqa and the chador are still widely used, and that entire populations, such as most of India and the Australian indigenous, Bushmen and Aboriginal communities, for example, are far removed from the so-called world fashion.
