    Default expression : to be fashion

    Is it correct to say "They are fashion." when talking about people.

    it is one of those expressions very popular among young people today when speaking "Frenchglish."

    Actually, they use it in French-speaking countries (France and Belgium for instance) to describe trendy people who know how to dress, how to have fun... according to their standards of course.

    Here is how it goes :
    "Ces gens sont fashion" The first part is in French and then they add the English term fashion.

    It sounds false to me but I may be wrong.

    Thank you

    I haven't heard it. You could use it if they embody fashion at its absolute height. Otherwise, use fashionable/cool, etc, IMO.
