I've always believed that fashion is more than just the expression of the feeble mind, but more essentially the soul. You don't have to spend a lot (as most people think) to be "IN" or something, being yourself is the base denominator.
Fashion is basically everywhere - like art finally freed from its cage. It is very crucial for all to accept the fact that "this-art" is here to stay, and cannot be effaced from the skin of humanity. It sticks, and forever it shall.
"Use fashion as a way to communicate, and not to subordinate; as a channel to express and not to superficially impress..." ;)
