Do you think fashion can be considered a form of art and self expression?

I have been pondering the nature of art and esthetics for a while now.
I think the most interesting questions are about what things are and are not art.
Questions like are video games art? is interior design an art? is cooking and food preparation an art? And is fashion an art?

On one hand wearing clothing is a form of self expression but on the other hand clothing is something you need to stay warm and protect yourself for the elementals.

The clothing you wear tell other people a little about you without you needing to say something. It tells people what you are like as a person and what collective you identify with.
If you wear a shirt a sports team that means you are a fan of of that sport team.
If you wear a Harry Potter tee shirt or cosplay play as a character then that means you are a fan of that piece of media.
If you wear a school uniform or just a shirt with the name of the school that means you are a student form that school.
If you wear a hat with a political slogan on it then that means you are a member of that political faction.
If you are wearing a suit and tie (or a professional dress if you are female) you are saying you have money and have places to be.

Do you think fashion would be considered as an applied art?
Fashion is an applied art.
