Hope someone can help
I'm not sure what you're asking ... are you looking for historical information? Or for information about current dress styles? (Empire, for example, is both ...)

Voguette?
I'm sorry if it's not the right place to put this, I thought that it would be the most appropriate part of the forum to post it
So I've seen this word "voguette" quite often lately on the internet, and I've been curious what does it mean exactly? Is it something like socialite?

Possibly someone who chats on the Vogue forums? (I know I also chat on the Australian Vogue forums and that's what some people call the posters).

My local newspaper has a "fashion column" (if you would call it that) and the columnist wrote "High fashion is here in the. . ." and went on to write an article about Charlotte Rouse (yes, it just opened and it's a big deal- obvously it's a small town).
It made me wonder, what is "high fashion" because I'm thinking it's not C.R. I want to write a letter to the editor about what a waste of space this article was but wanted to get my facts straight!
Thanks!

^ Perhaps it's a relative term

^That's what I'm thinking since there isn't much out there as far as a set defination of it. I think I'm just looking for any excuse to rip her article on C.R., I mean, who cares?

^ Maybe this is a sign that you need to live in a bit bigger 'fashion capital'

what is the difference between a/w and f/w? if i've got it right, it means autumn/winter & fall/winter, but why is there two different terms for the same thing? :p
