What is High End Fashion?
Before I dare attempt to figure out how to
explain this term, maybe we should first determine how to write the
word. Is their supposed to be a hyphen between the word "high" and
"end"? After several years of research, I have come to the
conclusion that some people write the word "High End" and others write
the word "High-End". For the sake of not offending anyone,
I will use either or both versions in this article. I hope you do
not mind. Anyway, lets get back to the original question.
What is high-end fashion?

world famous fashion designers. Although most luxury fashions
are from the
popular fashion designers, it is only fair to state that being
popular or rich is not a requirement. We often jump to the
conclusion that luxury clothing must come from famous designers.
designers that are "not yet" famous are equally qualified and
capable of designing, manufacturing, and selling well made and expensive

designed by fashion designers and produced with luxury fabrics, what is
the difference between "high-end" fashion and "luxury" fashion?
Well, that is a good question for which I unfortunately do not know the
answer. Between you and I, possibly the terms luxury and high-end
Can you guess who wears the expensive clothing
that would be considered a luxury? Yes, you are correct.
They would be the rich and famous... As we would like to call them
here at Apparel Search, they are the
fashion celebrities. These are the people that go thru
designer fashion and
jewelry as if these things are free. Well, actually many of
the fashion celebrities get free product at the runway shows and from
publicists. Therefore, some of what they have truly is free.
