A fashion collection generally refers to clothing produced for a particular season.  Fashion is a popular style and we all know that what is popular today may not be popular tomorrow.  Therefore, the clothing industry is constantly designing new products.  One way for clothing designers & brands to display product to buyers is to develop seasonal collections.

A fashion collection can be clothing, footwear, fashion accessories, or a combination of these items.  It is essentially a selection of outfits and individual garments that fashion designers put together for the upcoming season.  The collection of clothing, footwear or accessories, reflects the designers predictions of upcoming trends, including color, cut, line and proportion.  The grouping of designs is what the design intends to sell to retailers.

Below are a few examples of some of the clothing collection categories.
