Fashionable position, for example (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

instance

'example' is the definition.
(synonyms)

'fashionable position' is the wordplay.
'fashionable' becomes 'in' (similar in meaning).
'position' becomes 'stance' (stance is a kind of position).
'in'+'stance'='INSTANCE'

'for' is the link.

(Other definitions for instance that I've seen before include "Case or example from ancients" , "Case - isn't acne (anag)" , "Particular example" , "Occasion" , "Exemplify" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
