We all have variating concepts on what fashion is and how it should evolve. It’s fascinating to see what different cultures deem aesthetically pleasing and acceptable.

I’ve collected several pins on unique world fashion for House of Rubi. Click this link to check them out on Pinterest!

Here is a list of 5 World fashion trends. Some are offensive, odd, fascinating, and/or beautifully creative.  Let me know what you think!

#5  The Hitler Chick- Thailand

This trend shocked the hell out me! Many times people use an image, cultural artifact and or historical person as a fashion trend, with out finding out the history or background of the image being used. I highly believe this is one of those cases. In Thailand there is a Hitler-Mania where his images are being used in animated form on sweatshirt, T-shirts and other clothing.

#2 Ikat Suit- India.  I Love this! Ikat is a woven fabric mainly associated with Indonesia. However, this fabric is traditionally made in India and other countries around the world. Threads used to create an Ikat print are tie-dyed prior to the weaving process. The resulting fabrics are beautiful!

#1 The Dashiki- West Africa.  Popular in the United States, and UK. This one is a House of Rubi Favorite!!

One of our most popular item is the Logan Dashiki. Dashiki originated from West Africa. It is commonly a short sleeved, vibrant colored, loosely fitted, cotton blend tunic, with multi-colored, V-shape embroidery, ornately embellishing the garment’s neckline, shoulders, and sleeve. The Dashiki print has been a popular fashion item this past summer in the United States and people are still crazy about it!  Check out the blog “House of Rubi Introduces the Logan Dashiki”  I plan on making myself a Logan Dashiki in the available red, greed and black colors!
