What we wear is so much a part of our basic everyday lives that we do not think of clothing as something that merits much thought and study. For that very reason, ‘Clothing’ could be a topic that provides avenues to many new concepts and skills. Clothing includes all the different garments, accessories and ornaments worn by people throughout the world. What better way could there be to start a project on ‘Clothing’ than to have a ‘regional dress day’?
Immediately, attention is drawn to all four major areas of why there is a regional (and then, by inference, a worldwide) variety in clothing. This is because there are differences in:
- purposes behind wearing clothes.
- the materials available for making clothes.
- ways of making clothes.
- clothing customs.
