FASHION AND THE CULTURE - Lingaya's Vidyapeeth


The fashion of a place is greatly influenced by its culture. Trends in fashion are merely a reflection of the culture of a society. Clothes are influenced by culture. Cultural shifts also have an impact on fashion trends.

Designers and manufacturers create clothing and accessories that reflect specific cultures.

Only when a fashion trend is in line with the local way of life do people follow it. Culture and fashion are intertwined. We can convey information about our identities, social circles, places of origin, and hobbies through our clothing, which is one nonverbal communication channel.

We can use fashion to express who we are through the things we wear and the accessories we choose. People make it their goal to stay up to date with fashion trends, and popular culture, which is a reflection of social and cultural elements, greatly influences them.

Fashion is part of culture

Fashion, which is all about how we look and what we wear, is greatly influenced by culture. It is critical to acknowledge that individuals from diverse cultural and geographic backgrounds create fashion.

We need to grasp our surroundings in relation to our way of life in order to comprehend fashion and trends. Our environment shapes our civilization and culture and affects how we live.

Such cultural shifts have an impact on fashion. Fashion permeates every aspect of our lives, with culture having the biggest influence. It is not just about clothing and accessories. People are defined by the way they live. The main way to convey one’s style through clothing is through fashion. As such, there is a cultural relationship between fashion and how people dress.

Fashion has played a significant role in society and culture throughout history. Additionally, people’s modesty and values—which are closely related to our culture—are reflected in fashion.

One aspect of our culture that is constantly evolving is fashion. Clothing and accessories are typically produced by designers and manufacturers in accordance with a nation’s specific culture. This becomes the region’s fashion, and most people are known to follow fashion trends as long as they are in line with the local way of life.

Each nation is unique in appearance. History teaches us about various nations, political problems, conflicts, and works of art, cuisine, and clothing. Art for a particular culture and people’s perceptions of that culture can be influenced by fashion.

When culture is ostentatious and gaudy, society tends to mirror that by going insane. Similar to a two-way mirror. Fashion does not only represent and impact culture.
