A Slave of Fashion is a 1925 American silent romantic comedy film directed by Hobart Henley. The film stars Norma Shearer and Lew Cody, with William Haines. A young Joan Crawford had an early uncredited role as a mannequin.[1][2]


Small-town girl Katherine (Norma Shearer) steals a train-wreck victim's lease on a New York City flat in order to enjoy the good life. When her family turns up, she pretends to be the wife of the absent owner who, in turn, returns.
