Fashion is a popular aesthetic expression at a particular time and place and in a specific context, especially in clothing, footwear, lifestyle, accessories, makeup, hairstyle, and body proportions. Fashion trend often connotes a peculiar aesthetic expression and often lasting shorter than a season, fashion is a distinctive and industry-supported expression traditionally tied to the fashion season and collections.
Whereas style is an expression that lasts over many seasons and is often connected to cultural movements and social markers, symbols, class, and culture. Unlike the Swedish warm clothes, the African Fashion is adapted to thin clothes largely determined by it’s climate and weather.
