« La mode & les codes vestimentaires »/«Fashion & Dress codes»

Free participation – Last Date of submitting entries: 30th May 2017!

Clothes are a proof of one’s association to self, a second skin: To dress is not just an affirmation of one’s existence in the society, a sign of belonging; but it is also a projection of one’s identity, seeking distinction and expressing one’s taste.

There are Clothes for every occasion – traditional, festivals, celebrations, sports, religion, etc., and several ways of dressing in specific contexts (generation, gender, age, geography, history …). So when the code becomes fashionable, it also expresses aesthetic as well as social aspiration.

The objective of this 7th edition is to show, through the extent and the the ways of dressing, all the richness of the patrimonies, practices and creations dresses and beyond, the diversity of the world.
