'Nothing is constant except for change!' Fashion is nothing but a constantly changing trend. This term is associated with clothes and accessories majority of the times. People relate fashion to what they wear. Though fashion is a wider concept, it has narrowed down to fabric, apparel, and accessories in modern times.


Oleg Cassini, a reputed French-born, American fashion designer quotes,


"Fashion anticipates, and elegance is a state of mind... a mirror of the time in which we live, a translation of the future, and should never be static."


Great philosophers have come up with different definitions for fashion. But all of them hold one concept in common - looking and feeling good! If you are fashionable, you are confident of your looks. You are sure that you are conveying the right impression before the other person. Being fashionable will certainly help you in taking the first step towards your goal.


Fashion has a long history of trials and errors. What was considered fashionable a few decades back might be synonymous to killing fashion in modern times! Similarly, what is considered fashionable in modern times may be like a fashion suicide for people living a few decades back! The era, beliefs held by the people living in it, and the culture in that era and in that region plays a considerable role in influencing its fashion trends.


Designers and manufacturers produce clothing and accessories in accordance with the culture of a particular region. It becomes the fashion of the region, then. People adopt a trend in clothing only if it is in accordance with the culture of that area. You may hardly find Muslim women clad in mini skirts in Qatar or American women in burqas.


Ancient Egyptian fashion was largely influenced by its culture in ancient times. They wore clothes that not only looked glamorous but was also comfortable to them in the hot climate. White was the most preferred color due to this reason. Workers and children were mostly naked. Maximum clothes and jewelry were worn by the rich.
