Abstract. In the paper fashion was observed in terms of its defining role for design, society and culture. In order to study the importance as well as the influence of fashion, it was considered in terms of paragon design, which transfers the crucial value for the overall history of the design. Several circumstances for a fashion item to become an example of paragon design were mentioned in this research. Among key factors there are identity, transmitted through a garment, deep meaning, which is shared both by the owner of the item and the society, fluidity of shared meanings, which demonstrates that meaning is affected by changes in time and location and close connection with other spheres. The study bases on the exhibition of the Museum of Modern Art in New York “Is Fashion Modern?” By observing a group of exhibits the key factors were determined. The study may be continued and developed by deeper observation of exhibits and their symbols, origination and shared values.

Keywords: fashion as design; fashion influence; history of garments
