Fashions. What do they mean?

It is often said almost with passive resignation 
that fashions reflect the customs of a people. 
But it would be more exact and much more useful to say 
that they express the decision and moral direction that a nation intends to take: 
either to be shipwrecked in licentiousness 
or maintain itself at the level to which it has been raised by 
religion and civilization. 

Pope Pius XII
