fashion1.jpgFASHØN was best known for the British hit Love Shadow, from their second album, Fabrique. While Twilight Of  Idols has much to recommend it, Fabrique was their last album with the original line-up.  I am, of course, always grateful for more information.

(note: all albums listed are US version, and to the best of my knowledge have never been released on CD.  Love Shadow is available on Electric Dreams, a German 2-CD set released as Polygram TV 525 435-2)

Many thanks go out to Elizabeth for providing info on Product Perfect! Many further thanks go out to Matt for providing information on several 7 and 12" singles, and also the videos.
