The Chic Talk

Hi my beloved readers!
Fashion Week is coming to an end, but all the fuzz is late to be over.
New collections, old collections, designers and brands are avidly discussed between runways.
People want to show how much they know about the industry, but the hardest part of it is to get it right. Some of the greatest names in the fashion dictionary are quite difficult and I was glad to find this "cheat sheet" written by The Harper's Bazaar team to help every fashion lover to master the art of the chic talk....
