If fashion jargon is something you don’t really understand, start here by learning these common words and terms that will up your game the next time you catch up with your fashionista friends.

HAUTE COUTURE


This term is French for high sewing or high dressmaking and often refers to exclusive designer creations. The exclusivity comes from the fact that haute couture outfits are constructed by hand from start to finish. Couture is always limited edition and is more expensive than ready-to-wear garments. They are also custom-made according to the wearer’s size. A good example of a couture outfit would be the Cinderella-esque gown wore by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan at this year’s Cannes festival.

LABEL


The term fashion label refers to upcoming designers who make ready-to-wear outfits in limited numbers. These outfits are high on style and are often expensive than regular store garments but lesser than established designer wear. The difference between a label and a brand is that the latter has been in business for longer and is already a known name.

ENSEMBLE


A French word, ensemble has been oft-used by fashion designers and you surely must have heard or read it quite often. In fashion terms, ensemble is usually referred to an outfit complete with accessories, jewellery etc. The whole look is called an ensemble.

SILHOUETTE


In fashion, a silhouette is essentially the basic shape or outline of an outfit. Some common silhouettes include A-line, straight, flared, asymmetrical, etc. Wearing the right silhouette according to your body type can work wonders for your frame.
