Clothing and the expression of oneself through fashion opens a conversation with the world, by being an effective means of nonverbal communication. Certainly, we are tacitly obliged by predefined rules, customs, conventions, and rituals that delimit that hypothetical freedom of ours. Those limits are set by our social environment, the culture and the religious value system within we were brought up. The dress can be used to gauge one’s commitment or level of fitting into their respective group and unknowingly becomes a marker of identity and social existence, as it indicates information about the person’s ethnicity, gender norms, value system and level of religious involvement. Religion, and by that I mean the ‘representatives’ of gods, have exploited that to assert social control. Symbolic devices such as the dress visually define – to a certain point – the individual and ensure their conformity to social norms. Thus, either sacred or secular dress can re-affirm loyalty and commitment to the group, and this is the reason why clothing is so important to a supposedly non-superficial practice. Sacred (holy, used in patriarchal religions to enforce gendered power) or secular (ecclesiastical, liturgical, used in rituals or by religious practitioners such as priests), these garments are used to express each culture. The odd part is that, although cultures evolve and progress, that doesn’t seem to be happening with the garments, and they seem rather fossilized and frozen in time.
