Fashion is a system in which people are actively encouraged to display their individuality by going out and buying exactly the same fucking clothes as everyone else.

People who are particularly fashion-concious can be easily distinguished by the following tell-tale signs:

  • walking down a street while swathed in an ugly, confused, cynical casserole of anything that was originally in style 18 years ago or before
  • wearing any items that appear to have been sprayed gold by the BBC Props department
  • clutching a bag which is either comically big or impractically small and embroidered with the words 'I LIKE BEING TOLD WHAT TO DO BY RICH PEOPLE' on the side.
  • Hair that looks like it was cut by a hyperactive 6 year old with safety scissors, but probably cost enough to feed a family for a week.
