western fashion and indians
September 1, 2007 10:05pm CST
If the so called fashion within the Indian culture will be appreciatable and acceptable? I could see girls wearing skimy dressess in the name of fashion.Last week a girl who was wearing a dress of this kind was criticised openly in the bus by some elderly ladies.I could see her uneasiness because of this hard comments but she deserves this is what i can say. Instead girls by name of fashion adopts unacceptable dress codes. having seen these dressess in newspapers and Tv fashion shows our girls are trying to stich these dresses with less material but with heavy stiching charge.One can dress fashionably but it should not look vulgar. Offcourse the question is why parents do not object to these dresses.I think one reason may be that these girls are employed with good remuneration and another reason is that the parents are helpless. Do you think this fashin change is ok in india..if yes why and if no why? share your views..

i think it's their own choice to follow the so called fashion or not.we live in a society with all kind of people,some may think this is unacceptable,but some are not.for me it really needs enough brave to wear some kind of dresses,but others may think it's okay.actually where there is need there is supply,i guess the sellers know it.

Suba, an excelletn post! I also think on the same lines, as you have written. I think teenagers and youngesters just run after trendy fasion, in the process the forget that they are living in a civilised society and they need to be within their limits, while going out of their homes. One needs to wear clothes, which are normally acceptable in a civilian Society, but youngesters do not bother about it. Our Indian movies and TV serials are also to be blamed for the latest dressed worn by the youngesters. Each one tries to follow the other, they think that if one is wearing a particular revealing dress, why cannot they? YOu are right, parents are also responsible upto some extent in this fashion race. But youngesters do not listen to their parents, I may tell you. They just do not pay any heed to their valuable advice. They would say, you are old fashioned, you do not what is the latest trend and just igonre parents' advice. When youngesters do not listen to their parents, parents also become helpless.

Good response deepak, being a youngster i myself hate to see girls wearing dresses which look vulgar.You have right said that only to a certain age childrens listen to parents in most things and one among is the dress they wear.They think they have right to choose what they want.

Thanks for your comments and I feel that this fashion race is spreading like a fire in a Jungle. I also do not like youngesters wearing vulgar and revealing outfits, but I find almost everyone youngester is following this trend....perhaps it has become norm of the day to look attractive, atleast from outside. Have a nice day!

There is a good saying "dress to please others and eat to please yourself" this is what i remembered reading your views on fashions. Yes, many girls now-a-days in the name of fashion they do lot of funny things, which they dont even know what exactly they do. First of all fashion should be studied and taken into account into proper manner, second thing to be noted is we should know what we are and what suits us, we just try to enhance our looks or so called beauty by improvising clothes and accessories in a well groomed manner rather than following what others wear, we should know our bilogical + and -. So i wish, in a country like India what was followed by tradition holds good in the matter of dressing. Fashions and changes are welcomes but never in a way that others look at us down and comment hard.

This kind of fashion will never be appreciated in our country where culture,tradition seems be valued heavily.I strongly object the persons wearing indecent dresses that too in a public place.I am not insisting people to wear PAVADAI THAVANI & all.But people look good in a Chudidhar if properly stitched.Sleeveless also doesn;t look good.Sleeveless chudidhars gives a nasty look i think.So people should avoid wearing.A lady looks so cute when she is in Saree.More traditional one.But chudidhar is good.Its not at all a fashion to wear modern dresses people are spoiling the indian culture.

I am not against western outfits but yes vulgar dressess i don't like.I myself don't wear western cloths as i don't like them personally.But yes in the name of fashion most of this girls are wearing so called fashionable cloths.Actually by wearing modern cloths woman mostly think that they have become modern but actually modernity lies in the thoughts not cloths.I have seen many hypocrites with ultra modern fashionable cloths.But there thinking is narrow.Actually the whole thing goes down to the person who carry such dressess.You should be able to carry them .By wearing vulgar dressess actually you become victim to the ever changing fashion world .

A dress is to portray a person in a good sense. A dress should be comfortable, give a decent appearance and should not be provocative. Recently, I read that in one of the American states a law has been passed to prevent people from wearing loose pants that expose their behind. While one can argue that a dress is a personal preference, please remember that you are wearing it in public. Whatever you wear in private is not questioned, but in public there should be a proper dressing sense.

Right said..but when we say this to people who wear auckward dresses in the name of fashion..they simply say they feel much comfortable in that dress and dont bother about those comments from public.Dont know when this people will realise the truth and change themselves.

Dear Suba i do agree what u say, The dresses of east india are very pretty and trendy, they are according to our culture, our society and our relegion. If u look at the fashion, u will note that wesrtern girls are going for eastern dreeses, beads, embrodery and stuff like that. i would say that our dresses should represent our culture, our heritage and our identity, we should not follows and fads . just to look like them its my point of view, byee

why wearing a skirt and blouse indecent- just because we live in a conservastive country. how you dress up has nothing to do with eve teasing, ask muslim ladies who are covered in Burkhas,. how they are commented on and whistled at while they pass , some are even fondles beneathe their covers. Its the male mindset that has to change. Unless we start treating the physical body as a natural thing and not a desireable object we can not be free of this. I had visited my hubbies village few years back. I was supposed to cover myself till chest level veil- I did so but the way the men of the village used to leer towards me as I was considered way fair then what they were used to and their eyes had such evil looks they could have gobbled me up if they could- I still shudder to think of it. Its the male mind thats dirty and thats what this whole dress sense discussion should address.
