History shows that the first ever fashion designer was Charles Frederick Worth. He was the first person to ever have the insight to create a fashion house. He is often still considered the Father of Haute Couture.
Fashions may vary within a society according to age, social class, generation, occupation, and geography as well as over time. If, for example, an older person dresses according to the fashion of younger people, they may look ridiculous in the eyes of both younger and older people. The terms fashionista or fashion victim refer to someone who slavishly follows the current fashions or trends. A new term originated in the United States during the economic difficulties of 2008: recessionista, combining the words recession and fashionista. Recessionista may be defined as a person who strives to remain fashionable on a smaller budget.
