Female Fashion - Terms of Interest to the Fashion Industry
|Fashion Terms Fashion Terms Directory Fashion Terms by Category Fashion|
Female fashion is fashion worn by females.
The word female comes from the Latin femella, the diminutive form of femina, meaning "woman," which is not actually related to the word "male." In the late 14th century, the English spelling was altered so that the word paralleled the spelling of "male."

According to the Wikipedia encyclopedia (April 2009 at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/female), a female is "Female (♀) is the sex of an organism, or a part of an organism, which produces mobile ova (egg cells). The ova are defined as the larger gametes in a heterogamous reproduction system, while the smaller, usually motile gamete, the spermatozoon, is produced by the male. A female individual cannot reproduce sexually without access to the gametes of a male (an exception is parthenogenesis). Some organisms can reproduce both sexually and asexually."
