NOUBI SAYS:  Dealing with your particular style is dependent on your personality just as any part of the body is dependent on the rest of your clothing. The relationship of your personality, body, and clothing must be in harmony as a whole for the best result. People read clothing messages only as a harmonious whole. So, knowing your body needs can help you make the right fashion choices. Most fashion mistakes happen when you choose garments because of how they appear on models and/or friends.

Five Factors that Affect Fashion

Designers create fashion which they think you will like.  Most of it is based on arts but part of it is economics.  Advertising agencies and Fashion Magazines are instruments to stimulate your imagination, and the bottom line depends upon your judgment on how you interpret those media messages to your particular style.

Factors that Affect Fashion:

  1. First and foremost is the geographical location. No matter how popular a fashion trend in Los Angeles is, may not be appropriate in a small prairie in Wyoming.
  2. Ethnic background. A popular trend in New York may not be a popular trend in Saudi Arabia even if both were designed by the same designer. And even if they live in the same community, traditional Christians differ from traditional Islamic culture.
  3. Age background of the population. If there is an unusually large population of older people, they may prefer conservative clothing in their community.
  4. Social activities of the people. Is it fishing or skiing?
  5. Economic condition. Is it an affluent community, middle or poor community?
