Fashion and Ethinicity


"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street; fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."- Cocoa Channel
Cultural multiplicity has touched many areas of day-to-day living. One such example of the promotion of positive cultural multiplicity can be found inside the fashion industry. Open up the pages of popular magazines and you will find an impressive display of cultural stimuli. Gota Patti evokes strong feeling of Rajasthan. Tropical flowers disseminated across a shirt or skirts remind us Goan beaches. Nose pins, bindis or henna are being exhibited on the international ramps.

The shapes of our clothing reflect many cultures from the flowing intricate wraps of Chania Cholis of Gujarat to simple white saris of Kerala to the simplicity of a simple tunic& skirt from North Eastern states.

Different fabrics from rich textured brocades from Banaras to soft elegant Pashminas provide us with glimpses into another ethnic culture. Fashion today is at the foreground of the cultural multiplicity drive, stimulating appreciation of other humanities.


A glimpse of Indian culture


The fashion world has been a sort of a helping hand in promoting an increase in artistic illustration. We are no longer isolated into a fixed set of standards and rules & regulations. Today we are mixing and matching an array of colors and wide variety of fabrics with abandon. Artistic creative expression is touching the skies at this point of time. The fashion industry now promotes appreciation of artistic & creative dissimilarities instead of sarcasm.
In conclusion, cultural ethnicity within the fashion industry has also had the effect of promoting appreciation of other cultures. There are several reasons for this phenomenon. Fashion has released a new wave of creative manifestation. This, in turn, has promoted appreciation of differences instead of sarcasm. Fashion is now allowing for individual identity within a group. Thus, the fashion trade continues to lead the way towards a more culturally diverse planet.
