There are a lot of people wearing clothes and accessories with ethnic patterns on the street this spring and summer. Even in photo-shoots for New Tribe from around 2 years ago, people wearing ethnic style fashions appeared here and there. These fashions are more tribal fashion than ethnic fashions giving them a broader meaning. These tribal fashions gained some attention at that time. To speak coarsely, ethnic fashions are the ethnic styles of countries outside of the Western world such as those in the Middle East, Central and South America, Southeast Asia, and Africa. The Western world’s ethnic styles are called folklore. Tribal fashion has the same meaning as ethnic style. There is no distinction on a specific area. This fashion encompasses a wide range by mixing different ethnic styles or creating a motif from these styles and arranging them. Tribal fashion which includes aspects of country or hippie fashions can sometimes gain momentum from ethnic fashion trends and looks to expand more and more in the future.
