Ethnic Style History and Fashion

Ethnic Style History and Fashion is a small fashion directory to make its readers aware of the effect of different ethnic group on fashion and of course about the effect of history on the same.Fusion is the latest trend in Woman Ethnic Fashion. It is a rage presently, not only in India, but in the West as well. The twenty-first century couture is basically dominated by the Indo-Western amalgamation.

Somewhere both the genre co-exists and somewhere those are blended together. A large portion of the Indian women population is still steeped into the ethnicity of their culture and attire. Many of them can hardly think of going for western outfits. The major reason behind such a choice is that Ethnic fashion suits any structure of body. The diverse kinds of body types that are found in India are hardly found in any other country. The versatility of Indian fashion made its way very easily to the ramps world-wide. Indo-Western Women Wear up-hold features from both the cultures and elevate style. The short salwar kurtas, halter neck blouses, the off shoulder ones and the spaghettis, poncho and kaftans, all bear the mark of Indo-western fashion. Apart from these the intricate embroideries from different parts of the country have made its own place on the ramps. Phoolkaries, Kantha works, Jali, Jardozi, Kundan, R.E. and what not. The ethnic style fabric paintings have let people discover the same old t-shirts, blouses in a new way. Starting from Madhubani, vegetable dye to Batic, everything just mesmerizes people round the globe with the intricate workmanship. Pink and blue check print fabrics of the suburbs in Madras are transformed into jumpsuits in Manhattan.

Almost all the aspects of culture flourished in the Elizabethan era. The emergence of famous drama performances paved the way of contemporary fashion to the stage. The elegance of the cuts and the usage of laces made those look exceptionally grotesque. People, even at this age are bedazzled by the intricacy of the embroidery and golden thread works of the era. In Elizabethan Age the attire and make-up were aimed at an elaborate, artificial, stylized, and striking look. The fashion arena was pre-dominantly the haven of the upper-classes. The 'Elizabethan' affinity towards display is visible in all the famous art works of the era. Intricacy was the order of the day.

Fashion in the Victorian era is embellished with a few distinct features. The invention of the sewing machine gave the world of fashion a new dimension. Synthetic dyeing initiated the use of intense color in fabrics. The crinoline domed skirt silhouette featured an astounding style of flat front and capered back. Overskirt came into vogue in this era. This overskirt could be lifted and tucked by a button. By 1867 all the fullness were bunched to the back of the dress. Crinolines disappeared to pave the way for tournures and bustles. The bustles are actually accentuated layers capering down from the hip region.

The year 1876 brought slim fitting trained dress with cuirasses bodice to the fashion-fora. By 1880 this cuirass bodice almost became the princess panel dress. The draped sheath dress was elongated at its back. 1883 gave birth to an awkward jutted out bustle. By 1889 the sleeve-heads got slightly elevated and it kept on getting puffier. The train and the puffy sleeves were the trademarks of the era.

Apart from the European Ethnic fashion, Asian fashion also falls under the realm of Ethnic fashion. Other than India, the countries that leave their mark of authenticity are, China and Japan. The Japanese have still not abandoned the kimono totally. They still wear that traditional attire in special occasions.

African traditional wears are marked by the gaudy colors and bright colored embroideries. Exceptional qualities of the African fabrics made it popular worldwide. Sweat is evaporated very easily through this kind of fabric.

Theydeserveit takes you on a ride of the time machine, through the ethnic fashion-world round the globe.
