    Countable-Uncountable: fashion or fashions

    Hello,

    Should "fashion" in the following context be countable or uncountable? If both are possible, which would be more natural or which would you say?

    a) Women's fashion has changed since WWII.

    b) Women's fashions have changed since WWII.

    Thank you.

    Nawee

    I agree, but I don't think that the uncountable form is wrong.
