    Fashion-conscious

    What's the meaning of this word in this sentence?


    'Skiing is quite a fashion-conscious sport.'


    I tried to look it up in the dictionary but I didn't find it.

    Dear maral:

    'Fashion-conscious' is a term used to mean 'concerned with the latest trends in fashion'. It refers to people who care very much about appearing in public wearing the newest styles in clothing, accessories, shoes, and,in your example, ski gear.

    I hope this is helpful,

    Petra
