To Wander // Global Fashion



One of the most beautiful things about traveling is encountering cultures and fashion that you have never heard of or seen before. Perhaps you’ve seen elements of the culture appear in high end fashion. What you might not realize is that most couture work found across high end fashion and home decor is created in cultures rich in religious traditions. Below are ten women from around the world, sporting their local traditional handwoven and beaded clothing. Pay attention to the stunning embroidery and beadwork in their traditional costumes. You can see the love that has gone into adorning these stunning clothes, often passed down through the generations. Many of these pieces tell a story about the family and where they come from and are passed down generation to generation.
