label whore

noun; other word formation type
Someone who only like to wear brand name clothing and who brags about only buying brand names.
 
They also make sure that the name of the brand is visible when they are wearing the clothing. A label whore usually seeks out brand names and wants people to know that they can afford expensive items. Whore went through a metaphorical change from the colloquial meaning of someone who slept with many people to the meaning of someone who likes a lot of name brands.
Etymology : Whore changed meaning through metaphor, and label whore was formed by compounding the two words together.
