A fashion line is a clothing subsidiary (usually maintained by a parent company) that designs and sells garments according to a specific ethos, often only slightly different than the company's flagship brand. A single designer or creative director will often be in charge of many lines, each presenting a different take on the company or brand's main idea. A few notable fashion lines include: Abercrombie and Fitch, Aeropostale, American Eagle Outfitters and Parker Alan Clothing.
Many mainstream brands (Gap, Banana Republic, Brooks Brothers) will use various (sub-)labels to differentiate their more expensive garments from the more common (e.g. Gap's 1964, Brooks' 1818 Collection), but these do not constitute lines per se. A fashion line will have its own retail outlets, design staff, offices, and often, catalogs.

Famous quotes containing the words line and/or fashion:
“The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin.”
—Bob Dylan [Robert Allen Zimmerman] (b. 1941)
“Nothing goes out of fashion sooner than a long dress with a very low neck.”
—Coco Chanel (18831971)
