24 fashion and style quotes you are going to love

Fashion is a fascinating thing, constantly changing and shifting – as styles go in and out, often reappearing years and decades later. High fashion couture is a very different beast to the looks that filter down to popular culture of course, both are interesting in their own right but both will fade in time, to be replaced by the next thing.
