Fashion is something where one doesn’t need to prove his/her personality time and again and it has nothing to do with wearing skimpy clothes. Even with sober kurta pyjama or saree, one can be graceful and yet look fashionable. One wearing Western or traditional without any demarcation being fashionable is completely coherent with one’s personality as to how it can be conducted.
