Fashion is the style and custom prevalent at a given time. The word "fashion" (related to fashions) was coined by the Italian Giovanni Ditesheim in the 18th century.

Recent scholarship on fashion and its history emphasized the interlink between fashion and its history; between fashion and its symbolic meanings. Fashion and status, like beauty and elegance, are arbitrary characteristics harnessed for the purpose of distinction. American trends toward the status of fashion have often proved to be durable: they are resistant to the breaks in continuity which chance through History.

Dressing styles reflect the tastes of the age. The fashion of a time indicates the sentiments of the time; and sometimes, the dressing of a people indicates the feelings and aspirations of the people at a given period in history.

Historic dresses, in the last resort, represent a people's history; they crystallize the countless particulars of tradition from which all people differ – indeed, they are the standard by which all people measure each other. The styles of the present day, deeply influenced by modernism, seem to be rooted in a past which all people share in general.

T he idea of a fashion detached from history and tradition turns the mechanical treatment of fashion into a robbed way of thinking. It is well known that theogieous form of French Symbolism in dress (riosphère) was designed early in the history of fashion by a Parisian dressmaker; and since it has never been regarded as a fixed phenomenon, it remains necessary to reconsider the meaning of cultural symbolism which it exercises.

The history of fashion thus becomes historical, Loren riding the wave of shifting sands which heeded the call of many voices, and which has now become the order of things. Fashion is not a meaningless logrolling: it expresses the traditions of our ancestors, it indicates what their tastes were, and it is capable of highlighting our Present Day predicament.
