With the internet as a stage and the enormous growth of Fashion Week on all continents, fashion is no longer a phenomenon that is strictly regulated by the West. Since the 80s, some of the most high-profile fashion designers have been Japanese, African and Turkish, appreciated for the non-western aesthetic they bring to the catwalks of Paris. This has contributed to the fact that in the last decade, designers from all over the world have begun to reflect intensively on their heritage and native culture. Craftsmanship, traditional clothing and original aesthetic views are boldly applied and interwoven with international fashion trends.
