Ethnic fashion is a set of clothing criteria that invites the eye in a colorful trip.
It a style that seeks to be authentic, refined with sometimes a spiritual meaning and a strong exoticism influence.
Ethnic fashion is inspired by the traditional attire or dresses of numerous Asian, African, etc. ethnicities. It is a mix of many styles with a wide range of varieties that have common features:
• Ethnic clothing is often colorful or even multicolored with fringes, feathers, and beads
• The fabrics bear geometrics or stylized patterns such as elephants, spiritual figures, trees, flowers and animals…
• The jewelry is made from natural and raw materials as wood, leather, rope and is sometimes adorned with small shells, mirrors semi-precious stones and/or metal.
• Ethnic fashion is mostly hand-made and from an age-old traditional expertise practiced by tribes, ethnicities and craftsmen of the world.
Those traditional dress codes are now used by fashion designers who updated them. Ethnic fashion can be chic as well as inexpensive but it is always laden with history and symbolism.
