A bunch of people in the thread for Prada menswear s/s 07 kept saying the jackets were made of PVO (i think). What does it stand for??? Plastic...???

is that the dictionary from wwd.com? that is so funny that you started this thread, bc as a fashion blogger, i have been searching for a great fashion dictionary so that i can better describe trends i notice, collections, etc.

can anyone recommend a really comprehensive, illustrated fashion dictionary (online is fine, but a single book that has everything would be even better!)?

[quote=rockitgirl]First I get confused about the terms of collections. Ready to Wear for example, how is that different than Women's Wear? Also I have seen some Sports Wear collections that are not sweatpants and exercise clothing, why is that?

Typically sportswear refers to casual separates.
They calls sweatpants and exercise clothing activewear.
