A major section of the fashion world is composed of fashion designers whose works are showcased in fashion shows organized by the various fashion weeks. The most popular among these are women who come from ethnic backgrounds. They come with an ethnic beauty that is not common with other women. In the high fashion world, these women are considered “high fashion.” These are women whose works are best displayed in high fashion magazines such as Vogue, Glamour, and InStyle.
For the women of other ethnic backgrounds, the fashion world is a place to display their traditional looks in contemporary designs. This includes accessorizing with southwestern or Mexican jewelry, wearing western-style clothing with western-style motifs, and adorning their bodies with feathered headdresses and other such cultural or ethnic clothes.
