In the United States:
Fremont is a train station in Fremont, California served by Amtrak and Altamont Corridor Express (ACE).
Amtrak tickets can be purchased from the QuikTrak machine located inside the station waiting area.
The station has two outside-boarding platforms. Platform 1, nearest the station on the north side of the tracks, is of standard length for Capitol Corridor trains (typically five cars long). Platform 2, on the south side of the tracks, is a short platform, and most trains calling on that platform board from only one or two cars. The usual operating practice is to have all ACE trains call at Platform 1, and to only have Capitol Corridor trains call at Platform 2 when there is another service (ACE or Capitol Corridor) running the opposite direction around the same time, so as to allow the two trains to pass on the double-track segment between Newark Junction and Niles Junction.
Fremont is a Bay Area Rapid Transit station that serves Fremont, California. The elevated island platform is now the southern terminal station of BART's Fremont line, which is served by trains on the Fremont - Daly City Line, which runs daytimes Monday-Saturday, and the Richmond - Fremont Line, which runs during all BART service times. All trains terminate service and reverse direction at this station. In due time, the Fremont station will no longer be the southern terminal of this line when the Warm Springs station opens for revenue service. The Berryessa station will extend the line farther, precursors to the planned extension to San José and Santa Clara.
Service at this station began on September 11, 1972. On October 2, 1972 a car ran off the tracks at this station due to a component failure, an incident dubbed the "Fremont flyer."
Fremont station is an important regional transit transfer point, as it is a hub for AC Transit and Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) buses.
Confessions of a Shopaholic is a 2009 American romantic comedy film based on the Shopaholic series of novels by Sophie Kinsella. Directed by P. J. Hogan, the film stars Isla Fisher as the shopaholic journalist and Hugh Dancy as her boss.
Rebecca Bloomwood (Isla Fisher) is a shopping addict who lives with her best friend Suze (Krysten Ritter). She works as a journalist for a gardening magazine but dreams of joining the fashion magazine Alette. On the way to an interview with Alette, she buys a green scarf. Her credit card is declined, so Rebecca goes to a hot dog stand and offers to buy all the hot dogs with a check, if the seller gives her back change in cash, saying the scarf is to be a gift for her sick aunt. The hot dog vendor refuses but a man offers her $20.
When Rebecca arrives at the interview, she's told that the position has been filled. However, the receptionist tells her there is an open position with the magazine Successful Savings, explaining that getting a job at Successful Savings could eventually lead to a position at Alette magazine. Rebecca interviews with Luke Brandon (Hugh Dancy), the editor of Successful Savings and the man who just gave her the $20. She hides her scarf outside his office, but Luke's assistant comes into the office and gives it back to her. Rebecca knows the game is up and leaves.

Fashion were a British new wave band consisting of Dee Harris, Al "Luke Sky" James, Alan Darby, John Mulligan, Marlon Recchi, and Dik Davis.
The band had two or three eras. The first, from 1978 to 1980, was part of the underground music of the 1970s, while punk was making their last hits in Britain, when the band, named Fàshiön Music, released experimental post-punk rock, like-reggae/ska and funk oriented songs; and was also characterized by the presence of lead vocalist and guitarist Luke Sky, who left in 1980, ending with that first era.
Fashion was formed originally as Fàshiön Music, in Birmingham, England, in 1978, and consisted of John Mulligan (bass, synthesizer), Dik Davis (drums), and Al James (lead vocals, guitar). James became known as Luke Sky, or simply Luke or Lûke (short for "Luke Skyscraper" - a reference to the Star Wars character Luke Skywalker and the fact that James was tall and thin), while John Mulligan was known simply as Mulligan and Davis as Dïk. At that time, they also founded their own Fàshiön Music label, and they released their first three singles: "Steady Eddie Steady", "Citinite", and "The Innocent".
