Alteration of power and dominance between the east and the west has occurred throughout the last 2 thousand years. In terms of evolutions, culture, modernity, sometimes east has been exceeded the west and at times the west has dominated. The supremacy in art, poetry, culture, science, philosophy flourished in the east in the earliest history while the western world was dashed in the "Dark Age". However, the initiates of the western imperialism pulled the western world out of that abyss and it became dominant over the rest of the world.
Every walk of life developed gradually. Mechanization, new procedures, new methods, vistas of trend, and modernity opened before both the east and the west. Both have travelled a long way, gone through phases to finally stand at a spot they are at present.
Trade and commerce has worked as a mediator to bring these civilizations together and substitute of every idea took place at a very large scale.
Clothing, way of living, food, vary from civilization to civilization. Various factors verify the trends prevailing in societies. No great civilization has ever been sophisticated but there is prominent distinction between their religion, norms, cultures, religion and beliefs.
Western clothing displays more of a casual kind because basically it a worldly society, therefore their clothing is a blend of gratuitous type. The West is the pacesetter of the present fashion world. Their clothing includes skirts, pants, shorts, jeans wear, t shirts etc. Formal wear is even cramped to three piece suits. Religion does not describe the dress code. What describes the western clothing is anything that is comfortable and trendy. Whatever attracts, fits perfectly, adorns the body is worn. The Europeans more or less follow the same trend. Mix-matched dresses embellished with requisites are preferable anywhere in the west. Western clothing is pardoned by the liberal thought of a free mind.
On the contrary Eastern clothing though it is fast changing portrays tradition and culture. Cultural obligations, Religious beliefs, traditions verify the code of dressing in the east. Traditional and habitual dressing is considered an essential thing in order to preserve what the eastern mind believes in and wishes to pass this on from generation to generations. The fact that cannot be deprived of thought is that now the west and the east have started to espouse a new, modernized pattern of clothing which is a combine of all cultures brought together.
