What is Fashion?

Wikipedia has this to say about fashion: “Fashion is a general term for a popular style or practice, specially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion refers to a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses or to prevailing styles in behavior. Fashion also refers to the newest creations of textile designers”.

We see a particular fashion evolve into a more popular and colorful trend or even see it becoming outdated after a while. But this was clearly predominant in the western world. Western travelers of the olden times traveling to Turkey, Persia or India noticed the absence of changing fashion in these countries as compared with the rapid pace of the Western fashion trends.

Times have changed and fashion is ever-changing throughout the world at an enormous pace depending on the occasions and seasons. It is interesting to see a blend of the eastern and western cultures in dress designing now. Designers adopt the styles prevalent in different parts of the world and offer unique creations that have clearly given way to a totally new perspective in fashion today.
