World fashion day on the 1st of august is celebrated to commemorate the glory, spirit and the art of fashion throughout the world and to highlight the achievement of national, regional and international significance in the fashion world.
Fashion is an ever changing wave that swipes the world and makes its own unique place in history. Fashion itself is a reflection of social, economic and cultural changes. It expresses modernity and represents the spirit of the times.
Nepali fashion industry is heavily influenced by the western fashion industry. Such influenced can be traced back to the times when the Ranas ruled the country.
The Military Regalia worned by the Rana Rulers were heavily influenced by that of their British counterparts. In the modern era of 1960s the hippies who came to Nepal influenced how the people in Kathmandu dressed up.
