Sometimes a question arises in our minds that what is fashion and how it changes and develops. Actually, fashion is whatever we visualize. It’s the inner feeling of every human being to represent himself in his own way. Fashion is commonly used in relation to clothes, shoes, accessories, and makeup etc. Fashion changes from season to season because of temper variations. It actually depends upon time, attitude, habits, behavior, interests and the regions. It also depends upon the location of a country, cultures, and even seasonal variations and behavior of the folks.

Every country has its own national dress which is worn by the countrymen along with the other dresses depending upon the occasion. National dress of Pakistan is shalwar kameez. Pakistanis love to wear it especially at national occasions like the day of Independence, cultural festivals, Eid, wedding functions etc. Some countries have sareez as national dress and some have western style dresses. Fashion is basically the amalgam of colours, ideas, interests, seasons, mood swings, hues, culture, concepts, believes etc. When a designer designs something he has to keep all the concepts in mind and then pile up his thoughts in the form of a beautiful dress according to the choice of the client. The dresses should be so attractive that it must make the client and other viewers happy and fresh up their mood.
