Fashion itself is a Language…
Miuccia Prada, the "brainy women's designer." rightly said and I must quote .. "Some say [fashion]'s about seduction, but I think that's limiting, What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today, when human contacts are so quick. Fashion is instant language." The fashion as language metaphor is pretty successful, and offers a lot to think about.

Why need to know about language of fashion?.....
 Every industry has a lexicon, but how does the lexicon of the

fashion industry effect those of us who are interested in style, clothes and their creation but who do not work in it?  There are many terms that exist as a way of describing what we see/make?  Such language felt pretentious, exclusive and snobby, often used by people too concerned with projecting the perception that they somehow understand fashion and are uniquely able to translate for the benefit of the rest of the population.

Most used languages in Fashion industries…..
