I've actually found the opposite in the UK - there's a conservative fashionista epidemic. Even in rural towns everyone has a metropolitan style, no matter how ugly, overweight or lower class they are. Most portraiture ends up looking like the Sartorialist. This is admittedly more of a problem for documentary work - an example.
