My understanding of history is that items that were costly were basically 
passed down to the next in line.  They may have been remade (clothing) or 
simply made to fit that particular person.  Armor, swords, etc were passed 
down the male line again because they were costly items.

So the way people learned of new 'fashions' was when they attended court of 
some type and saw what the nobles surrounding the King, Queen, Prince, 
Princess, Duke, etc wore.  Then the 'cloth' was remade into more fashionable 
clothing.  Sort of a waste not, want not.
