not sure if this is the right place to ask this but what is the actual definition for high street fashion? Is it just a term for everything that is more mass produced not expensive designer?

High street fashion would mean the likes of Zara, H&M, Topshop. Cheaper fashion "designer" wear.

He had cutaway sides made in his slippers in order to make his legs appear longer. A D'Orsay shoe nowadays just means any shoe with cutaway sides, but usually these days with a high heel.
