Convict fashionable couple (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

inmate

Here is my best explanation:

'convict' is the definition.

('inmate' can be a synonym of 'convict')

'fashionable couple' is the subsidiary indication.

'fashionable' becomes 'in' ('in' can be similar in meaning to 'fashionable').

'couple' becomes 'mate' ('mate' can be a synonym of 'couple'**).

'in'+'mate'='inmate'

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for inmate that I've seen before include "Con", "One institutionally confined", "Someone confined, eg to hospital or prison", "eg Prisoner", "One is confined to an institution", "Lag", "Inhabitant of prison or hospital", "Person serving a jail sentence", "con" and "Inhabitant of prison or other institution".)
