Fashion Anthropology – Style Around the World

What is Anthropology?

Anthropology is (basically) the study of all things about all people in all places throughout all time. It takes a deep look at various cultures–with the intention of being objective and non-judgemental in doing so–to find differences and similarities, and discover what it truly means to be human.

It’s a discipline that we can learn a lot from. Because it takes account of so many aspects of human life, it’s a treasure trove of information.

How we dress is one aspect that we can use to understand who we are as people. Why do we dress the way we do? How do other aspects of life (Such as relationships, socio-economics, and religion) affect what we choose to wear? Why are some things acceptable in one culture, but not another? The posts in this category will look into how people dress all around the world, and why, suggesting answers to these questions and more. I’m so excited to jump into studying this with you!
