|Fashion Week Neophyte: FWN|
In my recent post "Confessions of a Fashion Week Neophyte" I attempted to make FWN (Fashion Week Neophyte) happen by describing myself as a deer in the headlights at MBFW. I'm not sure that it was clear (something got lost in editing) but I decided that this was a good opportunity to talk about the acronyms that exist in fashion and maybe some that don't, but should.
If you're a high boots wearer those boots are OTK but if you're dressed like a blogger at Fashion Week you could be OTT. BTW, you could also be an AW (Attention Whore). Check out my past article: LTH (leather thigh highs) speaking of attention getting trends.
There are fabrics such as CDC (no, not the Center for Disease Control, it's crepe de chine, obviously) and PDS (not sure if they use that for Peau de Soie as it's more often referred to as Duchess Satin these days). There's also PU (polyurethane), PL (Polyethlylene) and PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride or plastic) which is used as a coating on several designer handbags including Burberry and Louis Vuitton.
