It's a person who crosses the boundaries of fashion and style, like taking a fad too far, or wearing too many trends at once and therefore taking the look from the glamourous to the ridiculous. It is also a person who tries to draw admiration through the designer brands (or a shameless copy of them), wearing labels- regardless of fit or personal style- and becoming a "walking billboard"!

the fashion police should arrest all such persons. they can be identified easily, all their clothing will have designer logos, they will be perfectly manicured, groomed and waxed and buffed. But instead of looking chic they will look "over the top" because they have no real taste or style. The mark of a true fashion victim is wearing every faddish trend that comes out.

Fashion victims are victims because they are vulnerable to faddishness and materialism, two of the widely recognized excesses of fashion, and consequently are at the mercy of society's prejudices or of the commercial interest of the fashion industry, or of both. According to Versace, "When a woman alters her look too much from season to season, she becomes a fashion victim. Someone who changes too much through different seasons and not wearing what they like , just wearing what is the most fashionable thing at the moment.

a fashion victim is someone who wears clothes that are not right. The clothes do not match each other in style or colour. They do not fit the person correctly. Sometimes the clothing is designer, other times it can be from the Salvation army. The key links between fashion victims is that they do not look good.
That fashion victim is wearing Pointed toe stillettos with army fatigues, and the colour doesn't even match.
