Fashion is incredibly diverse globally but Media in some areas of the globe has a stronger effect in some parts than others. Media today makes it very simple to see other fashions around the globe but all media isn’t trying to push it onto consumers but could be showing diversity. Looking at National Geographic’s global fashion photos you can see that fashion is different all around the world. Some wearer’s choose what to wear based on religion, occupation, or region; you can even see that the ports and how many foreigners go through influence some cities fashions.
Media has a strong hold on fashion in the United States and utilizes their methods on consumers constantly. In the U.S we are technology driven and are always driving by stores, seeing commercials, and following influential people so we often have media and celebrities showing us what is new and cool to wear and the many different ways we can go about purchasing the items. Places that aren’t so media and consumer driven don’t have as much influencing their choices. They could wear the traditional clothes, or whatever options that the seller made.
