Before heading towards the topic of Fashion Nepal, lets first know what fashion really means. In simple terms fashion can be defined as the way of living. It is ultimate form of art which refers to how people dress and deals with the things like what kind of clothing materials and accessories will make them look presentable, up-to-date and fanciful.
Fashion is something, which is not related to the way we dress, it is the way we present ourselves. Our behavior, our manners and our style of representing ourselves also counts. Although these things are not superficial and dynamic whereas Fashion is. Fashion keeps on changing with winds of time continuously. And this can be proved if we compare how people used to dress in the past and in present.
Nepal may be small developing country, but Fashion Nepal cannot be compared to the size as the Nepal itself. In reality, fashion Nepal is an emerging trend here. Nepalese fashion sense is extremely influenced with the western culture. However, we have to admit that not much impact is taking places in the rural areas. Although cities like Kathmandu and other places fashion is becoming a part of life for the public.
Nepal is a secular country, which is home to diverse ethnic groups, religion and even the climatic conditions. And all these diversified situations has created significant changes in Nepalese clothing both in the past and the present. Nepalese clothing has also been influenced with the neighboring countries like India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan, but no one can deny the fact that all these clothing are unique on their own. And all these aspects make it possible to do something more in the field of fashion in Nepal.
