Fashion in Ancient Times

In the ancient days royal, expensive, stylistic and highly attractive clothes are generally worn by the courtiers. At the same time the Pharaohs in the Egyptian soil, were not ready to leave behind. If you make a detailed study in this realm, the terracotta figurines that belong to the oldest Harappa Age expose the hair styles with the interesting head gears which can also be compared with the modern hair styles that have a heavy look. The dancing girl of Mohenjo-Daro wearing bangles in her arms are not at all behind any fashion concepts of any ages. It cannot be denied that the whole world had been attracted by the glamour and allure of Cleopatra as she was a woman with unique political skills. Moreover she had crafted many fashion styles starting from jewellery items to stunning outfits for the great Egyptian emperors.

In the west, the Greeks and Italians gained reputation not only due to the high standards in art, architecture and warfare, but also they supported the appealing and elegant army uniforms and court-attires with their unique and intricate concepts in designs. Lot of extra ordinary range and variety of apparels have been supplied to the world through their illustrious Greek and Egyptian and Indian mythologies and these have been preserved and also they stand out in the form of various paintings and sculptures. The modern day fashion designers had taken some of these ancient models as the greatest source of inspiration for their creation of unique trends in designs and styles.

In the modelling and fashion industry, cultural influences will have a great impact on the various aspects of modelling world. In the western or secular countries and cultures a colourful two piece bikini may be great fashion item but at the same time it is restricted in some rigid and fundamental fields and areas. On the other hand, there is no demand in the secular and modern world for the veil but it is popular in the continents such as Australia, North America, Asia, and Africa.

All these fashion clothing items and articles could bring together all these factors and will get the status of cross-cultural designer dresses. Earrings, bracelets, pendants and rings are always there in fashion since ages with the trivial exception of very little diversity in shape, materials and style. These items are all having big scope in all kinds of societies and cultures. If we think at the individual level fashion may not just a simple word or even an uncomplicated attitude. It may not even be an overwhelming desire. Thus fashion is actually a diverse system of belief that can influence individuals in so many ways.
