Western culture is beginning to embrace middle eastern culture with the popularization of turbans in fashion. For the Yigal Azrouel Cruise 2010 Collection, there is a colorful collection of urban-chic wear with a middle eastern twist. Every model sports a turban that is brightly colored in yellow, purple, teal, etc.
This westernizing of middle eastern tradition is definitely something to look out for!
Implications - Turban-inspired apparel is indicative of the growing impact of globalization on the fashion and apparel industry. While this pattern is generally thought of as North American fashions influencing dress in other global regions, this pattern shows there is clearly a market for the reverse case.
