Along with many other students in the class, I really enjoyed the past weeks discussions. When the word myth was first brought up I didn’t exactly know what to think. Once the myths were broken down into categories with descriptions, the concept make a little more sense. When my group first got together we didn’t come up with ideas right away, but once a few ideas came up, we were able to think of more and more myths that exist in the fashion world both locally and globally. One concept that we came up with was the myth or ritual of school uniforms. When discussing this with Karl, our group was able to take this thought a little deeper and think about business attire. Which led to the power that people associate with the wearing of a suit. This is one myth that actually may work both globally and locally because people all over the world tend to associate suits with power. But in most cases, such as the wedding dresses for example, myths are not the same globally as they are locally. Here most women wear white or something close to white on their wedding day, but in India women wear red. Here we wear black or dark colors to funerals, but in India they wear white. I find these two examples a bit ironic because here there is a myth to avoid the color red when attending a wedding, and white is the last color we would choose to wear for a funeral. From this we can see that cultures effect the myths that are found in fashion, which would be the reason as to why the myths are different around the world with all the cultures that exist today.
