Indian fashion for what it is a most fascinating topic in most parts of the world. This country in question sits alongside the very few others at the very top of world fashion.
Most cultures of different parts of the world, such as the Italian, the Egyptian, German, and the American culture embrace fashion to certain extents that it is almost their way of life. But, when it comes to Indian culture, fashion is not just a part of culture, it is a way of life.
No sane man can avoid fashion; every day we partake in fashion as parts of our lives; When we go shopping for cloths, we partake in fashion. When we think about what cloths to wear, when to wear them, and how we will look on them, we partake in fashion. When we clean up the house to make it look appealing we indulge in fashion. It is a compelling art we can not resist; Fashion blends into our lives so well that we do not see it when it is being active.
Given its importance, what could be said to have been the very back bone of this phenomenon? And especially, what is its foundation and how strong is it? Going back in history, fashion can be traced back to the very core of the ancient world, and can be traced back to the period of Heidelbergensis. Thus, fashion can be said to have started gaining notice right from when humans realized the importance of shelter, and clothing. It is indeed a grand and vast topic.
There is no telling where it actually started nor who its founder is, but, it fair to say that India has been one of its major back bone bones of all time.
The Indian culture, how is it and why is it so famous? The country has gained its credibility today because of its never-ending but natural effort to improve art. And even more surprising, as a point o back this up, is that every state in India has its manner of traditional dressing, and no two are the same. It is a mind-blowing fact.
