Dresses with ethnic motifs traditionally associated with the appearance of hippies who have applied for a system of values is not an existing civilization, where the most important criterion for the money, and the traditions of Eastern and Indian cultures, placed above all spiritual values. They have ethnic motives in European clothes, which have since been considerably strengthened.
In the distant 70s there has been a change in the fashion world. Trend was formed not in fashion houses and in the streets kupno cities. Creatively-minded youth dressed in his own way, and the main trend was the ethnic orientation of clothes. Fashion designers, themselves inspired by the values of many hippies who promoted love, rejection of war and freedom, borrowed ideas associated with ethnic motifs.
One of the first was Yves Saint Laurent, who began to create a collection of clothes at first rocker, and then in the ethnic style. His revolutionary for the conservative idea of haute couture was forced to leave the great couturier fashion house Dior, which he headed at the time. But a talented fashion designer did not leave his ideas, his collection of folk elements first so shocked the public, met in the future more and more approval. That he did everything to make dresses with ethnic motifs, which many initially perceived just as dirty rags "flower children", included on the podium and took their places among the strict and prudish collections. Saint Laurent was inspired by folk costumes of ancient China, Africa, Morocco, Peru and other countries.
Another great fashion designer Kenzo designer from Japan, took the next step. He began to combine ethnic clothes in Japanese, South American, Scandinavian and Oriental style with conservative "European" patterns such as small cell and strip. After his collection became normal wear ethnic dress with a classic sweater or jacket to add ethnic motives in strict clothing cut.
Jean-Paul Gaultier, the master of eclecticism, also paid great attention to ethnic grounds. He used them with careless youth style. It turned out that it is aligned with the ethnics tattoos and piercings. Gaultier himself believes that ethnic motives can draw ideas endlessly, this phenomenon is able to update the stagnant fashion industry.
Today, however, it is not necessary to observe stagnation. Dresses with ethnic motifs, as well as various items of clothing are not factory-made and hand made, at the peak of popularity.
