"Dedicated Follower of Fashion" is a 1966 single by British band The Kinks. It lampoons the contemporary British fashion scene and mod culture in general. Originally released as a single, it has been included on many of the band's later albums.

While it was quite scornful toward them, many of the fashionistas the song mocks would later take its title to heart.
