*Pulls out dictionary*


Started out by typing fashion in to Google as I was curious as to what will come up to be honest and for the first couple of pages I wasn't impressed so I didn't go any further. Then I thought I guess it all boils down to personal definition of the word but then I also thought I wonder if there is a universal definition given to I picked out my IPhone and searched for my installed app and typed in Fashion. Everyone defines it differently and I guess that's the beauty of it but I was still curious none the less, so here's what I found......
