    I understand this word carries the meaning of fashion or vogue (at least that's what Wiktionary says :p), but what does it really mean? Obviously it wasn't around 500 years ago, but is it a derivation or just a randomly assembled word?

    Actually it is an old word, it's just the spelling is modern. It used to be tíðska, from tíð (time, season)
