Fashion, pt 2

A fashion remains popular for a few months or years before being replaced by yet another fashion. A product or activity is in fashion or is fashionable during the period of time that a large segment of society accepts it.

After a time, however, the same product or activity becomes old-fashioned when the majority of people no longer accept it.
